The Mission of Striving Together Equals Progress is to provide guidance and instruction to young inner city males thus enabling them to become productive citizens in their community and society.

Striving Together Equals Progress Inc. (S.T.E.P.) is a nonprofit Rites of Passage and Manhood Development Organization based in Newark, New Jersey. S.T.E.P was started in the year 2000 by five concerned men with one central purpose in mind:

An important aspect of the S.T.E.P. philosophy is "in knowledge there is power". We have placed emphasis on this reality in the drafting of our curriculum format.
