Career and college smart.

We know you’re ready to step into your future, but do you have all the tools you need to succeed? The STEPS Academy can help set you up for success, whether you want to continue your education, start a career or aren’t sure what’s next. We can help you turn your strengths, interests and skills into a rewarding future with communications, financial literacy and work readiness services and resources.

You do not have to participate in STEPS I in order to participate in STEPS II.

About the Workshops

Join one of our upcoming workshops to build new skills and prepare for your future career. We’ll help you with:

Career Pathways

Do you want to continue your education? Or are you interested in finding a job? We can help you navigate your options, including Youth Apprenticeships, career exploration and more.

Work Readiness

Looking for work is hard. But we can help make it easier with interview practice, employer connections, resume tips and examples, job shadow options, and employability skills.

Financial Literacy

Adulthood comes with unexpected bills and financial necessities. We can help you avoid money stress by creating a budget and savings plan that works.


From professional emails to elevator pitches, it’s important to know how to communicate with bosses and coworkers. We’ll help you build skills to gain confidence in the workforce.
