Our Mission

The College Step-Up Program at GWH exists to serve youth who need  a supportive environment and are driven to realize the tremendous potential that resides in us all.

  • Education is the core of our program.

  • Post-secondary education increases earning potential as well as Human Capital.

  • We are committed to helping students plan and follow through with an appropriate course of study.

Life Skills:

  • Life skills are another important ingredient in the recipe for success in the CSU Program.

  • Obtaining a post-secondary degree/certificate and living independently takes a strong set of life skills and that is why we made it a part of the CSU TRIAD.

Network Development:

  • It is a proven fact that people need people.

  • Nobody had realized lasting success in life without relying on others from time to time.

  • In the CSU Program we help students develop that network of peers and adults that will become lifelong ties for them and support them wherever they land in life.
