There are no words to express the gratitude I have in my heart for the partnership that has been created between the Escondido Union School District and the A Step Beyond program. Community partnerships such as these can change the trajectory of so many lives. Not just the lives of the children who are blessed to participate but also their family members, the educators who serve them daily, their friends who are influenced by the strength of character developed in these young people. Everyone who supports this program understands the profound impact that A Step Beyond has on our entire community. Long may it thrive!
