What is STEP?
STEP is an international movement inspiring people to bridge the generations through empowering conversations.
Founded in Olympia, 2014, STEP elders and youth ages 13-35 meet every Saturday at 11am via Zoom.
A multi-age gathering where women talk, story, listen, be heard and have fun doing it!
Founded in Victoria BC, STEP UP encourages youth 18-30 to learn and share with elders of the community.
Beginning with just twelve people, in five years, over four hundred people have enjoyed STEP.
STEP helps youth learn social skills, hear living history, and build a heightened sense of community.
STEP helps elders raise their sense of happiness and belonging, grants a sense of purpose, and reduces social isolation for stronger well-being.
