Get Involved

Step Up relies on the support of community members. Get involved today!


Step Up invites Hope College students, high school students (juniors or seniors) and community members to mentor with our program.

Meet some of our mentors and students, and learn what they love about Step Up.

All mentors complete a short application which includes a reference and criminal background check. Mentors receive volunteer mentor training before meeting with students, as well as in-service training and support during the year. Mentors commit to meeting with their mentee(s) two sessions per week (2 hours each) for a minimum of one semester. Step Up mentors work with their same student throughout the semester.

Please fill out an application or contact us for more information at stepup@hope.edu or 616.395.7020.
