Step Up! allows our returning young people to use their voices by engaging in advocacy projects on behalf of themselves and their communities. In so doing, the young people directly address the inequalities facing them and also become leaders and advocates in their communities.
In addition, the Step Up programme focuses on more practical supports for our young people including assistance with applying to third level education and providing targeted mentoring and guidance. It also focuses on skills development, ensuring the young people have the personal and professional skills needed to flourish in their lives.
