SteppingStones have taken advantage of the Young Parents Programme, recently hiring a young Caymanian mother they met while volunteering for the programme.
Sharon Woodman was introduced to the company through the programme when SteppingStones volunteered by providing seminars and workshops on resumé writing, interview preparation, worth ethics and other relevant subjects. Sharon was initially hired on a part-time basis but has now accepted a full- time administrator role for the company.
The Young Parents Programme was developed by the Children And Family Services Department to provide training and work placement assistance for young mothers in the Cayman Islands.
“We were more than happy to volunteer our services to a great program like YPP, and always on the lookout to do our part to develop the homegrown talent here in Cayman. Sharon is a perfect example of the benefits companies like ours can receive from getting involved with these valuable programmes,” explained Milly Serpell, Managing Director at SteppingStones.
