Step Up Success Stories
In 2009, the Humboldt County Workforce Investment Board held a celebration for youth employed through the StepUP for Youth Jobs program. Youth participating in the Digital Pathways segment of StepUp gathered and produced a video collection of testimonials relaying information on how the Summer Youth Program prepares youth between 16 and 24 years old for work. The community leaders, parents, employers and youth came together on a summer evening in Eureka, California to celebrate our collective success and were surprised to learn that the StepUP program not only provided work experience, the program changed the life course of many youth in our community.
