The Step-Up Mentorship Program teaches young men to learn what it takes to succeed during high school, their post secondary career, and beyond for continued opportunities the rest of their lives.
With support from school staff across the Northwest Suburban Integration School District collaborative, we will work together for the purpose of sharing knowledge, experiences, and to raise expectations. We will show that it takes a village to propel students forward in life.

Student selection process and requirements
NWSISD staff along with school staff will identify potential participants.
