STEP UP - Outreach Team
STEP UP is the outreach arm for Coney Island Anti-Violence Collaborative.
Step UP consists of a coalition of volunteers within the community who serve the organization as outreach workers and first responders. Step UP members spend a minimum of two hours per week performing street outreach in the Coney Island community, to engage and invite local residents to participate in Collaborative events and initiatives.
Step Up is essential to the mission of the organization. They help to establish the pulse of the community by providing the necessary groundwork required to bring awareness to the problem of Gun Violence within Coney Island.
The team exemplifies stellar community dedication and awareness to such related issues. Members of the team are from the community, some of whom have been impacted by gun violence directly. The individuals commit their time outside of their personal work schedule to advocate for the mission of the organization.
