We guide every girl to their success.

Step Up is a mentorship nonprofit providing the structure for girls (and those who identify with girlhood) to define their ideal destination and get there -- wherever that destination may be.

We provide the structure for individualized success.

Success looks different for everyone. No one destination fits all, so why would one path fit all? At Step Up, we help girls achieve their unique visions of success. We create safe, brave spaces for girls to connect, learn, and grow alongside supportive mentors (and each other).

The space for inspiring connections.

Step Up provides free mentorship programs in person, online, and on demand that concentrate on supporting each teen along their journey.

With structured programs, focused support, and inspiring connections, we’ve established a multi-generational community that shares the resources and relationships needed for individual and collective success.

My mentors did not have a career path set when they were in high school or in college. Their career paths were unexpected and that gives me hope that I will figure out my career path, too.
