Empathy matters now more than ever. The strength of character to listen, withhold judgement, and seek understanding matters now more than ever. The capacity to care more about people than ideas matters now more than ever. For 13 years STLF has been building empathy in young people, and it matters now more than ever.

In honor of STLF’s 13th birthday I will be writing my blog series on some of the 13 Staples of STLF. These staples are our fun way of describing the culture and character of STLF. I’ll be talking about these, in no specific order, specifically how they relate to my life in the office and on tour.
Give To the Max Day is one month away and we are excited about it! Like…very excited about it. Give To the Max Day is STLF’s biggest fundraiser of 2016! STLF raises $110 for each student who participates in our programs and we need your support. Your gifts provide students with opportunity, a place-to-belong, and action-inspiring programs.
