At Dogeared, a large part of our corporate culture is shaped by supporting our community and giving back – through volunteering, partnerships and financial support. For the past two years, Dogeared has enjoyed an incredible partnership with Step Up, a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to inspiring girls to fulfill their potential. Step Up offers after-school and weekend programs to empower teen girls from under-resourced communities to be confident, college-bound and career-ready. Many of these teens face challenging life circumstances and Step Up ensures that they stay in school, helping guide their futures to break the cycle of poverty frequently helping them be the first in their family to attend college. Step Up recruits an extensive network of professional women to invest in the future success of these girls through mentorship and financial support. Step Up projects that for a fifth straight school year, 100% of seniors will graduate high school and be accepted to college!
