Step Up Northern Michigan is humbled and grateful for the confidence that the Grand Traverse Regional Community Foundation has placed in our efforts to continue to serve our most vulnerable student population throughout the five county region.
Due to a cut in Federal Title I funding, the S.T.E.P. (Students Transitioning in Education Program) staff hour’s were cut in half. This comes at a time when outreach is very critical to the success of our at-risk student population. This $15,000.00 along with a $15,000.00 donation from Step Up Northern Michigan and $5,000.00 from TCAPS will enable these three employees to return to full time status.
Thank you to the generous donors who continue to support the success of our great community!
A huge thank you goes out to our new friends at Leelanau Outdoor Center for reaching out to us and offering to prepare 30 family sized meals for this Thursday’s Curb side pick up! We appreciate your generosity! http://www.gtrec.org

We are excited to announce that when ever you drop off a bag of quality household clothing/items and mention Step Up Northern Michigan, we will receive a $1.00 credit to be utilized in the store. $5.00 for larger items, such as furniture etc. This will allow us to provide some of our most vulnerable students and families with the opportunity to shop with dignity in the store! Thank you Double Edge!
