In this program, our 9th-12th grade students participate in paid internships which include placements in a variety of local settings including the medical/health, education/youth development, technology and government sectors, among others. Participants also attend training sessions that focus on improving workplace readiness and financial literacy skills and increasing knowledge about different careers and post-secondary educational programs.

We also assist our students to connect with other internship programs held at locations such as Boston Children’s Hospital, Beth Israel Medical Center, The Country Club, The Emerald Necklace Conservancy and with state government.

Steps continues to provide programming that enhances the aspirations and skills of the young people we work with and helps to close the opportunity gap for students from low-income families.
