StepUp Greensboro prepares people who are ready, willing and able to make positive changes in their lives for jobs and more stable lives. Our programs help people living in poverty and those who are homeless, including veterans, the formerly incarcerated and families with children.
We believe that every person has the right to work and access to a better life.
We believe that people can change if they have the desire and will.
We acknowledge that empowerment is a far more powerful strategy for change and success than enabling.
We expect honesty, discipline and fairness of ourselves and others.
We encourage accountability and responsibility from all involved.
We honor diversity and understand that every individual has a voice.
We are committed to collaboration with others because few problems can be solved alone.
We strive to be careful stewards of human and financial resources.
StepUp Greensboro partners with adults & children in the shared goal of stable lives through jobs and life skills training.
StepUp Greensboro is the first replication of the comprehensive, best-practice model, StepUp Ministry Raleigh. Since 1998, StepUp Ministry Raleigh has transformed thousands of lives with Job Readiness training and teaching comprehensive life skills. Through its effective programs, graduates have moved from lives lived in poverty to tax-paying employees who can support their families.
StepUp Greensboro works with adults who are ready, willing and able to work and they are invited to register for the free Job Readiness Training offered each month, by calling 336-676-5871.
Partners from many faith communities, community organizations, non-profit groups and individuals support StepUp as volunteers and donors. Guilford County employers partner with StepUp to find motivated employees. Other non-profit organizations collaborate with StepUp Greensboro with GED programs, education, training, transportation, housing, furnishings and clothing services.
