A Job Changes Everything
We partner with individuals to find long-term employment. We teach skills like goal setting, interview techniques, overcoming obstacles, time management and ensure you have a job ready resume.
We know that there is more to life than just work. Our supportive approach allows individuals to learn and grow in all areas of life. Whether it be managing your finances, career development, education, family or your community.
Retention & Advancement
We provide intensive support to ensure sustained employment and ultimate career advancement – creating new beginnings for you and your family.
Transforming Lives, One Job at a Time.
Since we first got started in 2003, we set out not to be your usual “employment agency”, we are a whole lot more! Sure, we work with people to build the skills and the confidence needed to get good jobs. But in doing that, we support people on this journey, to unlock something deeper within. Whether that something is as seemingly simple as greater self-esteem, or as elusive as a career in the field they have always wanted. StepUp is not just about jobs – we are about the sense of hope, the power of overcoming your past, and the joy of a new beginning, when one person’s power and abilities are in full effect.
You’re not just giving us skills, you are giving us hope.

During Jobs Week I gained faith in myself again. I am now ready to move forward with my life.
Here are some of StepUp Wilmington’s supporters.
