Grow and learn. 

Children (birth-16) are required to come with their parents, and young adults (16-21) can come if they are interested, whether or not their parents are involved in the program. They will receive similar training as the adults, on age appropriate levels. The program is designed to teach resiliency, promote school advocacy, and empower children to be their best. Bring your child(ren) with you on Tuesday nights, where they will:

1. Eat dinner and fellowship with other StepUp children, staff, and volunteers.

2. Play games and do fun, structured activities.

3. Get homework help, gain exposure to the arts and etiquette, and more!

4. Learn the same life skills as you, on age-appropriate levels.

5. Celebrate their success at graduation!
