OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The kickoff effort for Step-Up Omaha starts Friday.
Step-Up is a partnership between the Empowerment Network and the city of Omaha. The program recruits, trains, and places prepared Omaha youth and young adults ages 14-21 in mutually beneficial paid summer jobs and work experience opportunities.
Last year, the program helped about 700 young adults get hands-on experiences in a number of jobs. This year, the goal is to include 900 young adults.
