What is Onboarding?

Onboarding is the opportunity to complete and submit all of the required documentation for participation in the Step-Up Omaha program. The goal of these events is to be a one-stop so prospective interns can complete program requirements, make connections with training partners and worksites, engage with community resources, and learn more about the Step-Up Omaha program.



When is Onboarding?

There are multiple Onboarding events from January through April. After submitting your application, you will be invited to register for your onboarding session at an upcoming event.



What do I need for Onboarding?

All interns 18 years of age and under MUST have a parent or legal guardian present to complete the onboarding process.

Prospective interns can not begin the onboarding process without the following physical documents (screenshots, emails, & illegible copies will not be accepted) Click on the document name to see acceptable document types and alternatives:

These items are required for ALL PARTICIPATING INTERNS and program participation will not be approved without them.

What happens at Onboarding?

When you arrive, you will check in with one of our volunteers who will verify you have physical copies of the five required documents listed above.

Once verified, you will proceed to the next station where you will complete the remaining documents for your NEW HIRE packet listed below.

To save time, you can download and print the documents bolded with an asterisk (*) below and complete them prior to your arrival. All other documents will be completed on-site during your onboarding appointment. If needed, printing services are available at your local library.

PLEASE NOTE: Documents completed incorrectly or incompletely will be discarded and you will be required to complete a new document at the onboarding event.

What if I miss Onboarding?

We cannot stress enough how important it is to select a date and time for onboarding that you will be able to attend. We regularly receive at least DOUBLE the number of applications for the available spots, so if you miss your onboarding event, we cannot guarantee you will have another opportunity.

If you know 24 hours or more in advance that you will not be able to make it to your on boarding appointment, please contact us at info@StepUpOmaha.com to let us know so we can get you rescheduled.

If your event is already past and you were not able to make it, return to the scheduling link in your application confirmation email as soon as possible to see if any upcoming dates are available. If no dates or times are available then you will not be able to complete onboarding this year.
