Step Your Game Up
The Step Your Game Up program strives to alter the academic trajectory of the lowest achieving students in Boston Public Schools.
With the help of City Year, the program challenges these students who are struggling with tardiness, absenteeism and failing grades to change their performance via personalized letters and contracts. The students who demonstrate the most improvement are given the opportunity to attend a Celtics game, a party with a player and an end of the year celebration. Top improvers are recognized for their work and presented with gifts at the year-end celebration.
