Join us as a chaperone as we expose Step Up teens to careers in the field of law!
Step Up is committed to giving teen girls the tools they need to explore their dreams and achieve them. Pathways to Professions is one of Step Up’s innovative career-preparation programs in which girls are exposed to a wide variety of professions through on-site field trip visits to companies, hands on workshops, visiting lecturers and networking opportunities.
On this Pathways to Professions trip we will visit Kirkland & Ellis LLP to give 20 of our top performing students a glimpse into pursuing a career in law. Join us for a brown bag lunch before heading downtown to as we take a tour of Kirkland & Ellis LLP offices, hear from a range of staff members, and enjoy an intimate Q & A. Help girls discover their dreams!
• A desire to make a positive impact on the lives of a group of young women.
• A fun, flexible and energetic attitude.
• A willingness to talk about your own exciting career!

About Step Up Teen Programs
Step Up Teen Programs aim to mentor, inspire and empower high school girls in underserved communities to achieve their dreams and reach their full potential. We do this through innovative after-school and Saturday enrichment programming that helps girls develop into the "total woman" - one who is confident, college-ready, career-minded and engaged in Step Up's cycle of philanthropy.
Our innovative programming includes: drama, photojournalism filmmaking, media awareness, poetry/spoken word, college prep, SAT prep, one-on-one mentoring, paid summer internships, and field trips to our members' offices.
