Learning and earning: Paid training programs unlock opportunities for workers
March 7, 2020
Ikasia Charles, 17, a junior at STEM School Chattanooga, had her first paid internship through Step Up with EPB last summer, and she's looking forward to another internship this summer. Even before the internship itself began, the mock interviews, resumé-prep classes and even sessions on how to dress and interact with employers were extremely valuable, she says.
