Step Forward Day with Pepperdine Alumni

Nationwide | September 2022

Each year, hundreds of alumni across the nation serve with their local regions at nonprofit organizations on Step Forward Day. Established over 30 years ago by two Seaver College students, Step Forward Day now involves alumni, parents, faculty, and staff from all five of Pepperdine's schools. We invite you to find a project from the list below, and roll up your sleeves for a day of community service with your regional network of Waves!
