This is a FREE event to Rotarians and Non-Rotarians!
This year STEPS will highlight Human Trafficking, an issue affecting people in poverty here and around the world.  Keynote speakers are Opal Singleton, author of Seduced, The Grooming of America’s Teenagers, and Dr. M.D. Kinoti, a professor at Regis University who grew up on a tea farm in Kenya.  Opal has trained thousands of government officials and school administrators about Human Trafficking.  Dr. Kinoti is active in international community development, working with Farm Concern to address poverty in Africa.  These presentations will inspire and help you understand how to protect youth and break the cycle of poverty.
Breakout sessions are designed to empower youth and increase understanding of the issues of poverty and how to develop sustainable humanitarian projects.  STEPS will also include exhibits by non-profit organizations and Rotary clubs, and a Speed Project Fair, a fast paced exchange of project ideas.
STEPS 2017 will deliver the inspiration, connections and information to help you make a difference in communities here and around the world!  STEPS is free to D5240 Rotarians.  For more information and registration, see
