Step-up Boys Summer Summit

The School of Education partners annually with the Northwest Suburban Integration School District (NWSISD) for the Step-Up Boys Mentorship Program Summer Summit. Approximately 50-75 young men from various schools within the NWSISD member collaborative will participate in the weeklong program.

The Step-Up Boys Mentorship Program helps promote student achievement by encouraging students to focus on four educational concepts: Aspirations, Expectations, Opportunities and Achievement. The program is intended to prepare students leaving eighth grade for the increased rigor they will encounter in ninth grade.
