STEP Up to Success
The program works with young leaders to train them to build resilience and life skills in raising their aspirations, financial literacy & numeracy skills which empowers them with the confidence to excel in class and in life. The STEP up to Success program is derived from Second STEP, an Evidence Based Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) Program. It comprises of multiple layers of activities and programs that lift the aspirations of the students and encourage them to dream about their futures, including structured workshops and aspirational tours. Importantly, it provides students with foundation skills of SEL which help create social cohesion within the classroom and playground, preparing them for high school, university / TAFE, and the workplace. The Second STEP resilience and problem solving program has had a positive impact on the students through a sustained and intensive focus on SEL skills.
