Alumni Advance


StepUp’s Alumni program welcomed five new members from our September 2018 Life Skills graduation class. They are actively attending Wake Tech classes and three are members of our Toastmasters International club. Congratulations and welcome fellow toastmasters.

Three Alumni received their Wheels4Hope cars last month. 

Two Alumni moved into new homes with their families.

Last month, alumni were gifted with a free professional development session from Josh Bledsoe, a Dale Carnegie Professional Trainer. Josh’s gift was part of Dale Carnegie’s Professional Day of Giving. More than 20 alumni enjoyed the workshop focused on getting participants comfortable with speaking publicly and within small groups on various topics with ease.

Alumni held their final Wake Tech Class night on December 6th. The class was entitled Vision Boards for 2019 Career Goals. Participants worked on their 2019 career goals which will be used to develop future career classes for the 2019 program year. Alumni Elizabeth (Lizzie) Price and James Ivy, Jr. presented their boards focused on entrepreneurship. Each received a door prize for their participation.
