More Information - STEP: Student Expedition Program

STEP’s Mission & Goals:

Mission: To equip motivated low-income Arizona students with the knowledge, confidence and leadership skills to obtain a college degree and break the chain of generational poverty.

We help students to:
• Become the strongest possible college applicants they can be
• Secure the best possible financial aid (up to 100% of the cost, no loans)
• Prepare for and apply to top colleges and universities in state and nationwide
• Discover and believe in the extent of their abilities and potential.

STEP’s College-Prep & Leadership Program:

Students apply to and enter STEP in their sophomore year of high school and participate in college-prep workshops throughout their sophomore, junior, and senior year. Workshops are designed to guide students through the process of preparing for and applying to college, with an emphasis on what it takes to become a competitive college applicant at selective 4-year colleges and universities nationwide. In their junior year, students are considered for participation in STEP’s 3-Week Wilderness Leadership Expedition to Alaska with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). We focus on introducing students to top liberal arts colleges around the country where they will receive individualized attention and excellent financial aid packages. We guide students in what they need to do now in high school to prepare for the academic rigors of these schools.

STEP’s Program addresses pertinent issues facing low-income, first-generation college-bound students:

 Lack of self-confidence in their ability to successfully tackle unfamiliar challenges and new environments.
 Lack of family knowledge and support regarding higher education and the college preparation and application process.
 Lack of focused guidance from inundated school counselors.
 Lack of peer and adult encouragement to pursue their highest dreams.
 Limited view of opportunities open to them in the larger world outside of their communities.

STEP encourages its students to:

 strive for academic excellence
 take challenging academic courses (honors and AP)
 study for the standardized tests (PSAT, SAT, ACT) and take multiple times for best outcomes
 become involved in extracurricular activities, including volunteer work
 take on leadership positions in clubs and organizations
 seek out / take advantage of leadership / college-prep opportunities locally, regionally & nationally
 research and apply to top colleges and universities around the U.S., as well as in Arizona.

The need for STEP’s work is tremendous. A 2013 study by the Arizona Board of Regents revealed shockingly low college-completion rates for students graduating from Arizona public high schools. For a majority of the schools with which we work, an average of only 11% of graduating seniors obtain a bachelor’s degree in six years.

In contrast, 87% of STEP’s alumni are attending or have graduated from college. Since we started our College Prep program in 2011, 100% of our STEP graduates have graduated from high school and gone directly to 4-year institutions. 100% are currently in college.

STEP students are enrolled in all three Arizona state universities as well as top-ranked schools nationwide, including Columbia University, Duke University, Colgate University, Georgetown University, the University of Notre Dame, Emory University, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, University of Southern California, Pomona College, Bowdoin College, Middlebury College, Smith College, and Pitzer College.

Position Qualifications:

  • Efficient, self-motivated, and independent worker
  • Ability to work on multiple projects at the same time and stay exceptionally organized
  • High level of interest in and commitment to the STEP program and students
