Mentoring Programs

Step Up’s programs create safe, brave spaces for girls to connect, learn, and grow from each other – and from a community of supportive mentors.

We provide the structure and support for girls to pursue their dreams of success.

What To Expect

Step Up is here to support every girl no matter where they are on their journey. All girls can find a place at Step Up, whether they're looking to Start Exploring, Build Skills, Take Action, or Cultivate Community.

Our programs are available in-person, virtually, and on-demand. We offer a mix of 1-on-1 mentorship, group mentorship, and mentorship for all through community events.
