GST Michigan Works! is working to reduce unemployment with their summer training and employment program (STEP)

The state of Michigan has an unemployment rate worse than the “great recession.” With looming reports confirming Genesee County as having the highest unemployment rates in the state, GST Michigan Works! is ready to help.

The STEP into work program is a grant-funded short-term work experience program designed to serve youth between the ages of 18-24. This opportunity will run now through September 2020.  The program participants will take advantage of career exploration.

They will learn what is required to take the career path they want successfully; finding the career that is right for them and staying on that path will secure a projected lifelong path of economic self-sufficiency. For safety precautions, the training portion of this program will be entirely online.

The STEP into work program supports the states’ sixty by 30 initiative to help 60% of Michiganders achieve post-secondary attainment by 2030.

To learn more and to apply, visit gstmiworks.org/stepapp, or call (810) 233-5974 ext. 102.
