• -Take a Step: Print the footprint on the website or create your own and write how you commit to step up for children and youth in 2021.

Take a photo of your footprint and take the step by sharing it on your socials with hashtag #StepUpTBay and tagging @StepUpThunderbay. You can also post it in your window for the month.
• Ask yourself, “What am I doing to support children and youth in my community?”
