E Way helped reignite the interest in the arts and music programs across Philadelphia public schools, helping to generate thousands in funding and help keep music and art in school. “After touring the world with music what better way to give back !”
Stephen continued his work in the community by joining the Humane Society Pets For Life Program in 2012 as a community organizer and dog trainer.

Stephen then went on to help develop the community outreach toolkit and several PSAs that would help reach communities worldwide.
