STEP up

When a student’s high-risk behavior puts his or her education in jeopardy, Step Up intervenes with solutions. The program trains students as peer mediators who can resolve conflicts among fellow students. Also, the program director provides case management for repeat offenders and mandates community service projects.

Community Awareness
Classroom activities that focus on leadership development and character education are combined with community service.
 
Case Management
