On June 9th, 2016, we joined together to celebrate the 40th anniversary of BIG STEP and its historical impact on the lives of people seeking family-sustaining careers in the skilled trades. We were blessed to have been able to connect with so many members of the community whose lives have been touched by BIG STEP – people who never would have imagined what they have been able to achieve with the help of BIG STEP and those who have made the program into what it is today.
