STEP-UP Chattanooga is operated by PEF and is part of the College & Career Success Initiatives. High School Students are nominated by counselors to apply for the STEP-UP summer internship, then selected students are invited to a work-readiness training session where they learn about building resumes and interview techniques. Based on interest and skills, STEP-UP matches the students with positions. The employers interview the students and make the final hiring decision.
Here is one of the students we would like to spotlight. Meet Maleiah Moon, she is a senior at East Hamilton High School and is planning to go to college for Physical Therapy. Maleiah interned at the Front Desk of Fairfield Inn & Suites Chattanooga East over the summer and excelled at her job! Classes have started back for Maleiah but we are excited to say that she is planning to work weekends during the school year!
