Steppin' Out

Steppin' Out

Spring 2021 Steppin' Out is

April 10th! 



With leadership and service being an integral part of the Baylor student experience, Steppin’ Out is a great opportunity for all Baylor students to practice leadership through direct service.  Twice a year, thousands of Baylor students “step out” together across Waco to serve the community, through Baylor’s Steppin' Out program.  This event allows Bears to give back to our neighbors who support Baylor in countless ways.  


Thank you for serving with us.  Now we want to hear what you did!  Click here to complete the short report form.
