Skills Training Employment Program (STEP)

Skills Training Employment Program (STEP) works one on one with SNAP (formerly known as food stamps) recipients within Buncombe County to offer guidance and financial support in attending and successfully completing A-B Tech courses and programs. Clients have the option of participating in occupational skills courses geared toward employment, high school equivalency courses, A-B Tech Job Club program, and two-year curriculum courses. Additionally, STEP offers employment services geared toward living wage positions for our clients including hiring events with living wage employers, resume and cover letter development and community-based workshops to assist in employment.
