Summer Training and Enrichment Program (STEP) Accepting Applications

Summer Training and Enrichment Program (STEP) partners with area businesses, nonprofits, and faith institutions to offer on-the-job training and mentorship to all Newport News residents ages 16 - 24. The program is a component of Building Better Futures, the city’s youth and gang violence prevention initiative.

STEP is a 10-week summer work readiness program that provides paid work experience, field trips, workshops, financial literacy education, and GED preparation classes. Participants are introduced to the world of work and skill development at a partner worksite. Program costs are paid by the city. The program begins June 4 for out of school young adults and June 18 for in school youth.

Businesses and organizations who would like to become a work training location can do so at no cost to the company.

Businesses and interested participants should complete the application on the STEP website. Applications for training partners and participants are being accepted until capacity is reached. Visit the Building Better Futures website for more information about the STEP program and the City’s broader youth and gang violence prevention initiative.
