What Is Step Above

Step Above is a personal development company specializing in innovative motivational performances and development services that empower youth and young adults. Utilizing a Positive Youth Development (PYD) approach, we harness the strengths of youth and  young adults to cultivate the next generation of leaders of our communities.

Our Vision

Our vision is for every youth and young adult to continually develop in a positive manner, constantly strive to improve in all aspects of life, and Step Above all challenges.  Step Above seeks to help students, teachers, and parents balance the scales and build the bridges that motivate and encourage leadership, personal and social responsibility, understanding, and confidence.

Our Purpose

Each and every day, students around the country are faced with obstacles that threaten their ability to succeed — external challenges like gangs and peer pressure, teen pregnancy, problems at home, bullying, and internal challenges with identity, self-esteem, focus, discipline and motivation. Step Above works to help youth to find strength in spite of these obstacles. Our guiding principles to working with youth, and how we structure our performances and workshops, is through our S.T.E.P. approach that we developed.
