STEP AHEAD is a website for people who have felony or other criminal convictions. It has information to help you job search, find job training, or set goals to move forward in your career and in life.
The content is split into six sections: Assess Yourself, Explore Careers, Create a Plan & Set Goals, Expand Skills, Find a Job, and Manage Your Career. The first step is to "assess yourself." Or you can start using the section of STEP AHEAD that best fits your needs.
Talk about your job search, training options, and your career plans with your Parole Officer or a job coach.
You can print any page of STEP AHEAD on the live website. Use the grey "Print" icon near the top left of any page. Note that this feature will not work on computers inside correctional facilities.
