Mentoring - STEP

Mentoring - STEP

Be a constant, caring presence in the life of a young person and help to change their future. 

STEP is a supportive workplace mentoring program that provides youth with a caring, adult who encourages and prepares them for success in a career oriented environment. The program pairs Camden County probation teens, age 16-19 with a working professional providing the opportunity to learn based on practical experience. Youth participate in this program for a minimum of 4 hours per week. 

Through the STEP program, the working professional establishes a relationship with the youth and models behaviors, attitudes, and skills needed for transition from school to employment.  The professional serves as a coach, role model, and advocate providing youth with an opportunity to contribute in a positive way. 

Teens participating in the program gain valuable workplace experience and learn firsthand the general work expectations of promptness, commitment, reliability, and quality work.
