How Step Up’s Mentorship Model Works

Step Up’s mentorship model is built on four pillars that characterize the experiences and relationships youth need to develop into young adults equipped for success.

We facilitate this development through a variety of career exploration, professional development, and social emotional learning programs. As a mentor, your role is to share your unique insights and to model participation in mentorship activities facilitated by Step Up staff.


Benefiting from the experiences of others to nurture personal and professional growth

Community and Connection

Leaning on the collective whole of the Step Up network to access opportunity and lifelong support

Social Emotional Learning Skills

Developing identity through self-awareness, self-mastery, and interpersonal skills

Career Practice

Gaining real-world experience through hands-on application, access, and support

Why Mentor With Step Up?

We introduce our girls to many women in various industries who have made different choices. Mentor once, and you’re empowering a girl to think about and plan for life after high school.
