What: Step Up Dallas chapter launch party

Where: Coach, NorthPark Center

The 411: Fashionistas from near and far recently gathered at the classic retailer to celebrate the local chapter launch of Step Up — an organization that inspires girls to achieve their dreams. This is the first regional chapter extension in 10 years.

With Tanya Foster as their host, attendees were invited to shop the latest collections, with a percentage of the profits directly benefiting the new chapter. It was announced during the event that, thanks to direct support from Coach, Step Up Dallas completed the first module of programming focused on goal setting and encouraged more than 150 girls to enroll in their membership curriculum. 

Step Up propels girls from under-resourced communities to fulfill their potential by empowering them to become confident, college-bound, career-focused, and ready to join the next generation of professional women.
