What is STEP?

Success Training Employment Program (STEP) is dedicated to enhancing job-readiness skills. The first six weeks 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 the first phase, 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.

Who is Welcome?

Any and every adult 18+ is welcome to participate. The content is designed for those interested in making a career change, who have experienced difficulties finding or keeping a job, or who are interested in improving their current employment position.

Program Benefits

STEP participants develop a close community that encourages personal growth. Participants have a team of professionals working in the community to assist with finding and retaining employment; providing personalized support to both employer partners and participants. Participants are offered access to social networks created with potential employers in St. Lucie County.
