Our mission statement is “Facilitating success for potential community leaders by providing financial, cognitive, and social support.” The definition of facilitate is “to make a process easier”. Countless roadblocks exist for young people leaving high school, especially those from historically “at risk” communities. The goal of our organization is to make the process of achieving one’s success easier by providing the support they need, in whatever way they need, as they take their steps towards their own success. This journey can look different for each individual; therefore, Steps for Success will provide financial, cognitive, and social support for each person no matter what their path entails.
