Welcome to Step NiagaraWe offer services to youth throughout the Niagara Region.
The STEP Empowerment Centre provides a welcoming environment offering free individual counselling for youth ages 12-24. We are a not-for-profit community-based agency located in downtown St. Catharines.
We identified a need in our community to engage youth in a supportive way, fostering trust and bridging gaps while providing a safe space in our community. With passion and purpose we welcome all youth, acknowledging their value, and empowering them to design the life they wish to live.
