The first session of the S.T.E.P.U.P. Program was extremely successful. A group of high school students were given the opportunity to shadow a local business owner and gain hands-on experience as well as mentoring. In the classroom, they learned personal finance, job skills, successful interview techniques and other life skills required for a successful future.

Crystal Dreams is proud to acknowledge the fantastic work of Cortney Bridgeforth as a classroom instructor for the S.T.E.P.U.P Program. Cortney is a Crystal Dreams Scholarship recipient. She is a shining example of the Crystal Dreams Foundation making a difference in lives of our youth.
