PEF recently announced a new workforce development program for high school students called STEP-UP Chattanooga, a paid internship program for low-income juniors and seniors in Hamilton County public schools.
The STEP-UP Chattanooga team will recruit high school students and provide work readiness training to help them be successful in interviews and professional settings.
Then, 75 students will be hired by area businesses, nonprofits and other organizations to perform paid internships this summer. STEP-UP Chattanooga is modeled after the extremely successful STEP-UP Minneapolis program.
