About S.T.E.P.  

Student to Empowered Professional (S.T.E.P.) is an online mentoring program where mentees and mentors communicate to address a short- or long-term goal via the Chronus mentoring platform, e-mail, phone, text, or social media. Mentees and mentors have the option of making arrangements to meet face-to-face; however, face-to-face mentoring isn't a component of the S.T.E.P. program.
