STEP Summer Cohort
The Supported Training and Employment Program (STEP) welcomed eight new and two returning former foster youth interns ages 18-24. The Human Resources Department and the Human Services Agency’s Independent Living program facilitated a five-day orientation where the youth learned about professionalism and essential workplace skills through a variety of interactive exercises. A big “thank you” to the employees who volunteered to be STEP coaches. The following departments welcomed STEP interns: Probation, Human Resources, Emergency Medical Services, Housing, Office of Sustainability, and the County Manager’s Office.
