District 150's Secondary Transitional Experience Program is designed to help students with job training and community work experience.
Wednesday's lunch is teaching students about etiquette, interviewing and other basic life skills.
Transitional Specialist Leigh Bowen said it's another way the district is helping students move in the right direction. She said, "Some of our kids may not have the skill set to go to college so this is a fortunate program for them, so we can work on how they need to look and dress when they go for an interview and getting that job, and keeping that job, especially if it's a job they like."
200 students are part of the STEP program.
The program is a product of the state's Department of Human Services and the school district.
