Pepperdine's 25th Annual International Day of Community Service! Step Forward Day is celebrating 25 years of uniting the Pepperdine community for an international day of community service. Step Forward Day is simple yet profound way for Waves to make a difference and live out the mission of Pepperdine. Join hundreds of alumni and students across the globe by serving on September 7, 2013. For the 6th consecutive year, the Houston Waves are partnering with the Rotary Club of Houston Skyline to serve the Houston community on Step Forward Day. This year we will return to The Westview School, which caters to students faced with Autism Spectrum Disorders, to build upon the world completed in 2012 and tackle new activities with the students and their families.
