Steepletown through a workforce development initiative called JobStart is introducing some amazing talent to local employers who are eagerly in need of filling job openings!  JobStart is not a job…

It is first and foremost a work experience that offers the space in which to further develop and practice the skills, behaviors, and thinking that employers expect.

JobStart is not a job…

Although participants are paid every two weeks for the hours worked through Steepletown, there is so much more to earn:  GED or other academic credentials, sector specific credentials, a network of support, a driver’s license, support services, confidence and hope.

JobStart is not a job….

It’s the beginning of a different future, a new start on life!

This past Spring Steepletown was awarded grants from the Steelcase Foundation and the Wege Foundation to continue this important initiative in our community to address the economic disparities that exist for young men of color in our community.   Steepletown also welcomes Korey Anderson to the team as the JobStart Instructor.
