Step Up is designed to give Bnei Mitzvah aged students the opportunity to take a step up into their Jewish adulthood and to understand the responsibilities and challenges that come with that, grappling with these questions through an innovative social justice experience. The program empowers young Jewish Australians to become leaders in their community, guided by core Jewish values of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), Tzedakah (justice) and Chessed (kindness) to create positive change in the world.

Step Up runs either as a 7-week term program or as a 3-day holiday program intensive. The term programs consist of seven 1.5 hour sessions once a week throughout the school term. The holiday program intensive consists of 3 consecutive days of programming- approximately 5 hours per day.
