STAR currently offers multiple programs:
The “Employment Readiness Program” is STAR’s original program. This program lasts for 6 Weeks and is offered 4 times/year. This programs targets adults and focuses on building computer skills, life skills, career readiness, and financial management.
The “In-Office Professionalism Program” is designed for those students who excelled in the Employment Readiness Program. This program lasts for 3 Weeks and is offered 3 times/year. This program allows students to have experience with real office projects, collaboration projects, public speaking, and time management.
This 1 week long program is offered during the summer. This crash course allows students to explore career pathways, participate in group activities, and hone some career skills.
Employment and Education Readiness (18-24 yrs)
This program is geared towards students who are between the ages of 18-24 years old. This program has been offered on site and we have also partnered with Coastal Plains Charter High School to offer the program at their location downtown.
This program focuses on preparing young adults for college and/or a career. Through role-play, lecture, group discussion, journaling activities, and individual presentations, we allow students to grow comfortable presenting, interacting with others, and honing in on their goals.
