Career S.T.E.P. UP Program

 We are currently taking applications for youth that qualify!

The Career S.T.E.P. Up program here at The Arc of Putnam County is federally funded by CareerSource of Northeast Florida.  The goal of the program is to help youth ages 16-24, further his/her education and employment.  Youth will get assistance from a professional instructor and job coach, many career development opportunities, transportation, daycare fees, and incentive bonuses upon completion of different steps throughout the program.  A great aspect of this program is that it is individualized to each student and what he/she needs. 

The education portion of our program is geared toward healthcare since that is the heart of The Arc of Putnam County.  We love to take care of our consumers, help them grow, and be involved! 

If you are between the ages of 16-24, live in Putnam county, and are not currently taking any classes, this program may be perfect for you!  Youth can choose to focus more on education or work or BOTH!  Please contact Brittany Usina at 386-325-2249 ext. 102 or by email at if you are interested in growing with us at The Arc of Putnam County.
