Please inform your START Worker you completed Orientation at your first appointment. This program was formerly known as GROW. The video and audio will be updated to the new program name in the future.
During your first Case Manager Appointment (CMA), a Career Assessment is completed to gather information regarding your skills, work history, education, etc. This information is used to help identify your employment goals and the next START activity that will help you reach those goals. You will continue to receive CMAs to discuss your progress and determine your next activity.
