Program Description

Step Up propels girls living or going to school in under-resourced communities to fulfill their potential by empowering them to become confident, college-bound, career-focused, and ready to join the next generation of professional women.

Step Up creates and implements impactful after-school programs that are open to all girls enrolled in one of our Step Up partner high schools. We bring our programming, designed to empower teens to become confident, college-bound and career-focused to each campus one or two days a week for a two-hour session.
