Step Up is Stand Up's program designed for Bnei Mitzah aged students as they journey and begin to explore Jewish adulthood. Offering students both an introduction and invitation to the world of social justice, Step Up invites students to take a step up and embrace the challenges as well as their responsibility to the world around them.
Offered in two different formats, our term programs and intensives, Step Up covers issues that are relevant and tangible including climate change and extreme poverty. The Step Up program hopes to empower young people to engage with social issues and support efforts for social justice. The program also hopes to highlight to young people the centrality of Jewish values of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), Tzedakah (justice) and Chessed (kindness) in our ambitions and efforts to foster positive change.
