Who We Are

Success is subjective. No one destination fits all – so why would one path fit all?

At Step Up, we believe girls deserve to define and pursue success on their terms. By bringing girls together in inspired spaces – on and offline – we spark exploration and discussion of what’s possible. With structured support and access to a strong community, we guide girls towards their unique goals: first, by identifying those goals and then, building the roadmap to get there.

Whether there is college, an internship, a network, or simply confidence – we’re there for it and there for you.

Step Up Girls Are

High school girls and those who identify with girlhood

Young women and those who identify with womanhood ages 18-29

Girls of color facing systemic barriers and/or first-generation students

Our Mission

Through structured programs, focused support, and inspiring connections, we help girls define and achieve their unique visions of success.

Step Up Ambassadors

I became an activist because I believe in myself. I know the experiences I’ve had with Step Up helped me gain the confidence and self-esteem to get to that place.
