STEP UP FOR KIDS

Each year Step Up For Kids events around the country bring together thousands of people to show widespread support for investments in children and families throughout the country and our state.

These events focus on raising awareness on issues American children face such as:

  • access to early care and learning programs,

  • access to after-school programs,

  • poverty,

  • child abuse and neglect,

  • and health care.

This year, Nevada’s 13th Annual Step Up for Kids event will be open to families from all over the state for the first time! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, activities for this year’s event will be held online, making it more accessible to communities throughout Nevada.
