What is the Step-Up Program?

Step-Up is a group intervention program for youth violence toward family members. Parents and youth learn together in a group setting with other families about how to resolve conflict and handle parent – teen problems without abuse or violence. Families learn and practice skills that build respectful and safe family relationships. 

Step-Up is intervention and prevention. The overall mission of Step-Up is to stop the cycle of family violence. Learning respectful relationship skills during adolescence helps to prevent violence and abuse in their future relationships and families.
