Summer Teen Employment Program (STEP)

Focused. Available. Tough.

About STEP

Each summer the Windsor Youth Services Bureau employs local teenagers for their Summer Teen Employment Program (STEP), a seven-week paid internship.  In the 2020 season, twelve interns have been selected to build their work experiences and gain the skills necessary for academic and professional success.  Interns participate in a minimum of 5-hours per week training in the areas of personal mindset, communication, planning for success, and problem solving.  Teens are tasked with small building projects, landscape maintenance, and special assignments throughout town.

STEP 2020 Completed Projects
