Stepout Journals provides the space and support for children and adults to develop their socio-emotional skills, who go on to make a positive and lasting impact within them and the society on a wider scale.

At Stepout Journals, children and adults are nurtured with social and emotional competencies through travel/activities/experiences using reflective learning practices and active dialoguing. This enables them to have a positive outlook towards their own identities, recognize the impact of their actions and make active change in their communities.
