Make a Difference

When I think about reinvesting in people, it is critical to prepare them for jobs and everyday living. StepUp excels at this training.

Provide Food for the Job Skills Workshop

StepUp Durham is always looking for groups interested in providing healthy meals during our week-long Job Skills Workshop. We typically serve a light breakfast of bagels or muffins, fruit, and coffee. Lunch consists of something that can be made or purchased ahead of time (ex. sandwiches, lasagna, salad, fried chicken, casseroles, etc.). Those interested in providing a meal for StepUp Durham participants are invited to contact Pauline Robinson, Volunteer Coordinator,
