Named New Partner Extraordinaire by Nonprofit, Building STEPS

Award recognizes the company’s service and volunteerism efforts during its inaugural partnership year with the nonprofit

Baltimore, MD, September 13, 2022 DP Solutions has been named New Partner Extraordinaire by Building STEPS, a Baltimore-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to, “equip our city’s brightest students with the tools to propel them to college and career success.” Building STEPS partners with Baltimore’s more challenged, under-resourced public high schools, to unlock potential and propel high achieving, highly motivated students to college and career success.


DP Solutions began its partnership with Building STEPS in October 2021 where volunteer activities have included career fairs, writing advisory workshops, STEM seminars, and a week-long summer career module.

“DP Solutions has welcomed our organization so kindly and have truly made an impact with our students already,” said Jennifer Descoteau, Director of Stakeholder Engagement at Building STEPS. “We thank them for sharing their talent, kindness, and time with us.”

“We are incredibly honored to receive this award,” said Karyn Schell, President of DP Solutions. “As a Maryland-based technology services company, we felt that Building STEPS would be an excellent nonprofit to work with due to the organization’s heavy focus on STEM education and professional development for Baltimore City high school students. We love that with Building STEPS we can directly engage with students to help empower their futures.”

Giving back to the community in profound and meaningful ways is a core value of DP Solutions. Receiving this award supports the company’s philanthropic mission to, “give back and serve our community by dedicating both our time and talent to develop and educate technology’s future workforce.”
