Step Up program receives CFHZ mini-grant award

The Community Foundation of the Holland/Zeeland Area, a local foundation that support high-impact projects and community-level initiatives, awarded a $750 mini-grant in support of the 2024 Summer Step Up College Visit Program. This program introduces Step Up middle school students to different types of college experiences through visits to a community college offering two-year and technical degrees, a regional public university and a private liberal arts college. Parents are encouraged to attend to support parent-led conversations regarding the college bound journey within families and the greater-Holland community.

Hope College’s Step Up program helps middle school students succeed in school and develop their future potential by caring for their social, emotional and academic needs within a mentoring context. The program provides academic support, mentoring relationships, enrichment programming, a summer program, and parent support and involvement.

Congratulations Kate and the Step Up team on your award!
