The Summer Training and Education Program (STEP) research demonstration was initiated in 1984 to test the effectiveness of a two-summer remediation, work and life skills intervention on the lives of 14- and 15-year-olds from poor urban families who were already seriously behind academically. The program provided youth with half-days of summer jobs under the federally funded Summer Youth Employment and Training Program, combined with half days of remedial reading and math provided by specially designed curricula and innovated teaching approaches. One half-day each week was devoted to issues concerning decision-making and responsible sexual and social behavior in the youth's everyday lives.
