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.
CURRENT EMPLOYABILITY PROGRAM - BRIDGE THE GAP
Bridge The Gap is an ESFA, ESF and Groundwork – funded training and support program aimed to improve access to employment for marginalised Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Youth aged 16 – 24 in Greenwich, through a person-centred holistic approach, by providing one-to-one and group support around CV writing, employability, job search, interview preparation, work exposure and soft-skills that employers are looking for.

We did it!!! Ran and completed the 5K Cayman Island Sundowner Saturday night in beautiful Richmond. Ran, Got the medals & T-shirts to prove it & we enjoyed ourselves! Was fun to meet up with JCI members for such a good cause to support disadvantaged informal carers and refugees in our community. Exhausted but elated.
