Step Up – Rewards & Incentives
STEP-UP

 

 

 

STEP-UP Resident Incentive Scheme    

As well as providing these activities to our residents free of charge we also reward participation through our STEP-UP incentive scheme.  When moving in you will be issued with a STEP-UP card and whenever you attend an activity, make a contribution to the YMCA, reach a goal or achieve a success in something, we will reward you by adding points to your STEP-UP card. The more points you collect the better the rewards.  We do this because we want to encourage you to get involved in activities that will help you to achieve your potential and reward the effort that it takes to do that.  STEP-UP is available to all MK YMCA residents (although you may be disqualified from the scheme if you seriously or consistently breach the terms of your occupancy agreement for example by non-payment of rent of anti-social behaviour).

Below is a basic outline of how you can earn points and the rewards that you can achieve:
