Success Training Employment Program (STEP) is dedicated to enhancing job-readiness skills. The first s120 hours focus on in-class discussion-based learning in the areas of Emotional Intelligence, Workplace Skills, and Job Acquisition. The goal of the program is job placement and long-term job retention. Following graduation from Phase I, participants become employed or have the opportunity to be placed in internships to develop additional job skills. Once employed, the participant will work with a success coach to enhance job retention and career development for up to three years or until they reach self-sufficiency.
