Co-partnering involves mentoring an individual in the StepUp Life Skills program! Participants in Life Skills may have experienced homelessness, domestic violence, barriers to employment or other challenges and have chosen to take part in four phases of classes to better their lives. The classes include topics like personal and relationship development, budgeting and goal setting! Each volunteer co-partner is paired up with one individual. Copartners are not required to teach the material as there is a volunteer instructor, but rather act as a mentor and friend and go through the material with your participant to ensure that they understand and have a helping hand in the process!

Commitment: Tuesday nights beginning at 5:45pm. All training provided and delicious dinner provided!

Mission Statement

StepUp Ministry is committed to helping adults and children transform their lives through employment and life skills training.

Description

StepUp Ministry was founded in 1988 by members of White Memorial Presbyterian Church and became an incorporated, self-sustaining 501c(3) in 1989. The early mission of StepUp was to provide transitional housing to working families who were homeless or on the verge of becoming homeless. StepUp’s early program model was adapted from a similar program in Dallas, Texas and was focused on financial literacy. Program participants met weekly with mentors (co-partners) to share dinner (provided by volunteers) and review the participant’s income, expenses and savings. Over 250 families have gone through this program and 80% have moved into independent housing upon concluding their time at StepUp.
