This is a greatly committed organization connecting students to business partners. If SIU had additional financial contributors and business partners there is no limit to its success. There needs to be more expansion to provide opportunities to the students on the waiting list.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my personal life watching my own daughter become an integral member of the board. I enjoy watching the students return to say thank you.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be a full-time staff working on fundraising and building additional professional business mentorships

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Honesty, integrity and commitment.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional, able to work together, and fun.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help a considerable amount of students, develop its vision of additional programs, hire full time staff, and open another location to reach more students.

Ways to make it better...

there were more financial supporters to further the vision. I the budget were larger more student would be helped and I would enjoy seeing the vision expanded.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

additional funds for continued success and securing more professional business mentorships.

One thing I'd also say is that...

i really appreciate how SIU Inc. has made a difference in my daughters life. Thank you to the financial contributors we really appreciate all that you have done. We need more contributors like you and more business mentorships for our students.

Tell your story here and help others understand this charity This is a great organization that works with at-risk high school students. The summer program was focused on career exploration. We had great speakers and took lots of field trips to show the kids options and give them ideas to explore. Great time for the kids and me!

The Great!

What Step It Up Inc. is doing is such important work in the world, and especially Portland. The statistics show that we are just not getting the high school completion rates we need for our kids. Diminished completion rates keep students from realizing their full long term potential, inhibit our ability to thrive as a competitive workforce, and fail to ensure the best possible future for our kids. Step It Up Inc is focused on creating an environment where students have an investment in completing high school by creating a line of sight to the satisfaction of doing so. Its success in retaining students, increasing the graduation rate, and growing them into young confident professionals speaks for itself. The work Linda McNeill and her team are doing here is astounding, and I'm so happy to be part of this organization.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Speaking with involved students, and hearing the stories of how life changing their experiences were.

I started in the SIU program once i begined high school till this day. I have been able to set goals for my self and achieve them. SIU has helped me be involve and believe in my self, knowing that there is someone out there that is whiling to help you and cares about your future is what has helped me. I would say SIU is like a family to me with out them I wouldnt be where im at. I have done an internship for an engeneering firm and am now a part-time employee in there accounting department and I am still in school. I thank SIU for all the help that they have provided for me they have made a diffrence in my life and i am sure they can make a diffrence in an other students life.

I really have enjoyed my experience with Step It Up. Since I spent a day helping out at a college volunteer fair- I really learned a lot about their mission and where they come from as a company. The bottom line is they want kids to succeed; in school, life, and relationships with their community.
