The StepUp Life Skills Journey


Every three months at StepUp, the culmination of a yearlong journey for participants in the Adult Life Skills Program occurs and is capped off with a formal evening Graduation Program. Emotions run the gamut with the graduates. It is on display over the course of the night as they are entertained with music, enthralled by two graduating class speakers, and are given a motivational charge to proceed forth with for life “after Life Skills”.

During the 48 weeks of the program, participants are encouraged to stretch themselves beyond their comfort zone, so they can grow in the spiritual, emotional, financial, and relational arenas. They are assisted in actualizing their goals and dreams by a team that consists of the StepUp Life Skills Case Manager and Co-Partners who consistently encourage, motivate, and insist upon accountability.

On September 8th, the next class of graduates will formally complete their Adult Life Skills journey with a 6:00pm program at White Memorial Presbyterian Church. We celebrate the accomplishments of these individuals over the course of the last year. We look forward to seeing how they continue to Step UP in the community and beyond, thereafter.
