Participants, Perseverance, and Partnerships


In our final Employment Workshop for 2017, 12 individuals started on Monday, and 12 individuals completed the training. They displayed a cohesiveness and drive that embodies the characteristics and qualities that employers champion in potential employees.

The newly minted graduates were granted the opportunity to meet with one of our partners, The Umstead Hotel and Spa, the Wednesday after they completed the workshop. StepUp and The Umstead Hotel and Spa have had a working relationship since 2013. 


And, based on the caliber of people that have been referred, to date, they have remained supportive of our mission and goal to extend opportunities for gainful employment to individuals that match the positions they have available.  

We thank the Umstead Hotel and Spa for their continued partnership and we congratulate the last workshop graduates on their perseverance and achievements.
