Our objectives of Step Up To Leadership is to produce successful members of society and to shift the mindset of those who are underserved and/or underprivileged. Step Up To Leadership provides services to males ages 12-17 that are medium to high risk for delinquency. The program focuses on males that reside in marginalized communities that suffer from high crime rates.
Step Up To Leadership’s programs are dedicated to reducing the number of juvenile complaints, thus reducing the amount of juvenile crime in neighborhoods. We plan to use methods focused on empathy, vulnerability, and relatability to create a connection with the youth and to also build trust. The program is designed to transform the thought process and increase chances of mobility to create a higher success rate among the local youth. The program in its entirety has a 91% success rate among participants who sought out completion. While enrolled in the program, 85% of parents and school staff of the participants have reported a positive trend regarding behavioral changes. 80% of participants that have completed the program continued a path of positive behaviors and wiser decision making. Step Up To Leadership helped its participants graduate, some receiving college scholarships and employment opportunities that begin career pathways.
