The STEP Education Program is a collaborative training effort led by Craven Community College (CCC) Workforce Development Center and Religious Community Services (RCS). Participants will be registered Craven CC students, earn continuing education units (CEUs), and have their program participation reflected on continuing education transcripts.
Participants are supported through a co-hort approach with optional assistance through the campus-based Career Employment Services Center to find employment. Register and attend class at the RCS Annex building (503 Guion Street, New Bern). The location is a CARTS stop. A meal is provided at RCS Kitchen.
