WELCOME TO STEP UP YOUTH

Life and career paths for young people can be confusing and stressful, particularly within the Black and Minority ethnic communities. With continued exposure to social and economic injustice, as well as structural barriers to progress in education, employment and enterprise, this leaves no hope for young people of ethnic heritage to succeed.
We at Step Up Youth, provide platforms and programs to engage young people and equip them with the right tools to excel. Employing holistic approaches, we ensure that our youth and partners have bespoke solutions tailored to their individual and collective needs.
We are breaking through the barriers, building an inclusive society with diversity at the heart of everything we do, addressing inequalities and creating powerful communities where every young person can succeed and prosper in spite of their background.
