We're launching in the UK in 2008!
In late 2008, StepUP is launching in 2 East London boroughs, and in Blackpool, Lancashire.
The stepUP Foundation is an innovative and highly successful not-for-profit youth organisation founded by Ryll Burgin in Australia in 2002.
The purpose of The StepUP Foundation is to educate and excite teenagers about the possibilities for their future in business and in life, by bringing high profile, inspirational business, sporting and other leaders and teens together.
StepUP events coach teenagers - our future leaders - from all walks of life - so they become educated and inspired about new possibilities for their own lives.
Since 2002, stepUP has expanded throughout Australia and New Zealand and has changed the lives of thousands of teenagers - with exceptional results.
And now a team of committed volunteers is launching StepUP in the UK – starting in London and Blackpool.
Meet stepUP's inspirational Founder, Ryll Burgin, in June!
To celebrate and support the arrival of The stepUP Foundation in the UK, Ryll Burgin, stepUP's Founder, will be speaking at a limited number of special functions in London and Blackpool from 11/6/08. Come and hear Ryll's inspirational story about stepUP's journey to date: and learn about her international vision – and how you can play a part in inspiring teenagers in your part of the world – and beyond!
Sponsorship Opportunities in UK
Sponsors are an integral part of stepUP. To date our sponsors have been a HUGE support and have received excellent business benefits for their own brand names such as PR, media coverage, full promotion to our Teenagers and to the stepUP Coaches – who are mostly other business people from Corporates or SME's who represent new sales opportunities as well.
stepUP reaches a unique mix of target audiences. An event has up to 1,000 teenagers attending, that means that between 20 and 25 schools will participate, approximately 40 teachers will be involved, about 2,000 parents, at least 200 small business enterprises, a dozen or so corporates, right through to local government. As a sponsor your brand benefits from all the promotion, media exposure and plugs we can muster to all these target audiences! You, your company or a company you know really could benefit. There are lots of ways and levels of involvement available to suit.
Several sponsorship opportunities are available right now to expand your brand reach:
- The Naming Rights for various events.
- Sponsoring segments of each event.
- Sponsoring Coaches to attend.
- Sponsoring Teenagers to attend.
- Gift Sponsorship ... Varied. To make each stepUP event great we require some £125,000 plus in free goods and services to offer our Teenagers. You can provide free products, vouchers or services to a certain financial value and receive some sponsorship benefits.
Or a combination of several options based on your business and branding needs.
