STEP UP REACH OUT (SURO) – AN INTERNATIONAL LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
SURO is an international youth leadership program designed to develop and train young adults in the bleeding disorders community who possess the drive and ability to become leaders.
SURO participants attend two mandatory program meetings held in September and the following March, with an interim project conducted in between the two sessions.
The program provides participants with the necessary skills needed to become active leaders in their local communities and change the world for hemophilia patients. Additionally, it enables participants to travel around the world and make new friends.
We asked the International Graduates of Step up Reach Out to give us their opinion about the program and why you should consider it too.
