Just ask Stephanie from Chatham. Stephanie did everything she could to prepare herself for a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) career. She got involved from an early age in enrichment programs and advanced learning opportunities. After finishing school, Stephanie was ready to get to work. Unfortunately, Stephanie went through periods of unemployment, taking jobs outside of her field, stuck in a cycle of unemployment and underemployment. Skills stopped this cycle, connecting her to a role as an IT consultant, allowing her to put her training and education into practice and starting her career.

“Step IT Up America was a life-changing experience, and I couldn’t be more thankful to Skills for connecting me to this opportunity.” – Stephanie
