NextStep offers job and social skills training to community members of all abilities. We work with many social services agencies, schools, and nonprofits, connecting their clients with real-life work experience. We have three training opportunities for volunteers. We recognize and support the abilities of each participant rather than focusing on their prior life experiences or disabilities.

By informing our community about how they can recycle items that would otherwise be highly harmful to our environment, we hope to encourage individuals to change their behavior and way of thinking. We hope to keep our community safe from waste to meet our priority of empowering people to protect their planet. We also participate in community events on national holidays such as Earth Day, ReUse Day, and America Recycles Day.
Please contact us to schedule one of our staff to speak to your group or attend an event.
