Step-Up Empower Youth


The Step Up Program has made a difference in various capacities with our Youth in Tulare County. Especially those who have been and continue to be at risk for drugs, gangs, and homelessness. Step Up has multiple programs for the youth including #LEAD, #GROW, Loop Bus, Summer Night Lights, Youth Challenge, and Youth Committee.
