Step Up Mentoring
Step Up Mentoring connects local teens to positive resources in their community with the help of appropriate adult mentors. Weekly group mentoring sessions (on and off-site) explore teens’ interests and provide a variety of unique opportunities for success. All teen participants have had some involvement with the Juvenile Justice System and this program is an opportunity for them to engage in healthy alternatives to various high risk behaviors. Activities on and off-site include visits from guest speakers, field trips, job shadowing, sports and outdoor recreation, as well as other possibilities.
