Imagine an opportunity where you can invest in educational options for the most vulnerable students – children who are disabled, come from impoverished backgrounds, struggle with reading and are victims of bullying. What once seemed like a radical idea 20 years ago is now a reality and at the core of Step Up For Students’ mission.

CAN YOU HELP DELIVER THE PROMISE OF EQUAL OPPORTUNITY?

Your support can transform the lives of Florida’s most marginalized schoolchildren, and together, we can reverse the downward trajectory these students face.

Harassment over his sexual identity was relentless at his assigned school. A Step Up scholarship allowed Elijah to enroll in a small private school. Welcomed into the community, Elijah thrived. “If I had stayed at my previous school,” Elijah says, “I honestly think I would have lost my life. I definitely am in a better place.”

Kiersten felt “stupid” when she scored below satisfactory on her state reading assessment. A Step Up scholarship paid for an after-school reading program in her public charter school. Now on track to read at grade level, Kiersten says “I feel more confident.”
