The Issue

There are obstacles for urban high school students between the ages of 13-18 living or going to school in underserved neighborhoods to have access to the right resources for future success.

The Cause

The non-profit works with girls to prepare them for high school graduation and empower them to graduate on time. In Step Up, girls work with each other and their mentors to think about and plan for life after high school.
