Young Men in Line

The S.T.E.P. Solution

Within the S.T.E.P. formula we have included a learning structure that seeks to systematically prepare our young men with the intellectual ammunition and the social armor to stand with authority, even in the face of a sometimes overwhelming environment. This foundation will afford them the opportunity for success in their personal lives and contribute to their collective input within their family and community.

 

The S.T.E.P. program involves two sessions per calendar year. The first session starts the first week in January each year and ends the second week of July. The second session begins the third week of July each year and ends the third week of December. These session ending times coincide with the scheduled times of our first and second session Acknowledgement Ceremony and Dinner programs that mark the end of each program period. .

 

Registration

 

Participant registration is accepted on a first-come first-serve basis and are reviewed for consideration accordingly. The organization's priority is to target the general Newark/Essex County area youth population; however perspective applicants from outside the mentioned area are not excluded from attending the program.

 

Each registration package includes forms that each parent must fill out and have notarized. Parents and/or guardians can email or call regarding questions or additional information or to receive a copy of our registration form. Completed registration forms should be bought in person along with assigned registration fees before youth are allowed to participate in the program.

 

Orientation

 

The "Orientation Process" is mandatory for all registered youth to attend - for the purpose of reviewing program goals and objectives, program rules and regulations, etc. At this time youth will be able to meet other youth participants, ask questions and get a general understanding and feel of the overall process and what it entails. Natural foods and refreshments are also served at this time.
