We work within middle and high schools through training, intervention and mentoring to provide weekly programming to adolescent girls as they transition into young adulthood. We also offer a 2-week Summer Leadership Program and a regional Young Women’s Leadership Day that is open to all girls from across southeastern Connecticut.
S.T.E.P.S.' programs are implemented through facilitated gender-specific discussions and trainings on key topics that teenage girls face in their daily lives. S.T.E.P.S. provides our girls with skills needed to become empowered positive members of their communities and help them break down barriers to success. We currently serve girls at West Side Middle School (Groton), Fitch High School (Groton) New London High School (New London), Science and Technology Magnet High School (New London), Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School (New London) and Kelly Middle School (Norwich).
