Step+ positively influence academic performance in several ways, including better attitudes toward school and educational goals; increased school attendance rates; better performance in school; increased academic achievement; improvement in grades; improved homework and assignment completion and greater engagement in learning.

Step+ affords youth various opportunities to practice new skills through hands on and experiential learning with a focus not just on academic support but also offers other enrichment activities.
