The job description and information regarding how to apply can be found here: Job Description
What is STEP? STEP is a 6-week, 150-hour job-readiness training class covering soft skills such as written and verbal communication, active listening, and teamwork and complex life skills like conflict resolution, emotional intelligence, and critical thinking as well as financial education to prepare participants for successful careers with our employment partners in the medical device manufacturing field and other growing, well-paying industries.
STEP guarantees job placement upon graduation–a certainty no other job training programs in the region provide—a completion stipend, free shared transportation to and from work for a year, and 18 months of follow-up case management and wrap-around services.
Since January 2017, 42 people have graduated and been placed in jobs. Eighty percent of those graduates continue working full-time.
