Thank you for your interest in Skills Transitioning and Employment Pathways to Success!
Here at S.T.E.P.S., we believe every person, regardless of their abilities, deserves the opportunity to share their individual talents with the world. Our first community-based training center gives young adults the ability to learn hands on vocational skills by volunteering in our shirt shop, balloon design studio, and our office center. Young adults have the opportunity to go through the order process from receiving orders to order pick-up or distribution. The skills our young adults learn can be applied to all facets of their life and allow them to increase their independence.
We strive to create the ideal environment for each one of our young adults, where they can grow in their vocational skills each day. Through our detailed assessment and interview process, we determine if our program is a fit for each young adult. At this time, we have a limited number of volunteer positions available and as such we must ensure each young adult is a perfect fit for our current training center. As we grow and continue to add additional training centers, we will be able to reassess all previous applicants.
After returning the complete application, a member of the S.T.E.P.S. administrative staff will review it and present all the information to our team. A member of the S.T.E.P.S. administrative staff will contact you to set up the interview and assessment. Upon completing our application process, our team will have a meeting to determine if we have an opening that would suit your young adult. You will be notified by our staff about our determination regarding the placement of your young adult. If your young adult has secured a place in our current facility, a staff member will work with you to determine the best start date for your young adult. If we do not have a position available at our current location, young adults will have the opportunity to attend our partner Day Habilitation Center, Next Step Transition Center. We will keep all young adult information on file and you will be contacted as soon as new positions become available.
Upon completing training, young adults will begin being compensated for their time! Young adults are paid $7.25 per hour Texas' current minimum wage. Young adults are paid in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Texas Workforce Commission Wage and Hour Division. Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com with any questions you may have regarding this process. You may bring in applications any time Monday- Friday between the hours of 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM, excluding holidays. Again, thank you for your interest in our program and we look forward to growing alongside your young adult!
