STEP Student Scholarships for Year 10-13
The STEP program is a Good Samaritan Industries (GSI) initiative, generously funded by the Department of Education’s Non-Government Centre Support (NGCS).

STEP offers work experience opportunities to year 10 -13 students with disabilities, in Good Sammys Retail Stores, the Good Sammys Canning Vale Processing Plant and Warehouse and our Good Sammys Café in Canning Vale.

We recently celebrated reaching our initial milestone of placing 100 students in work experience within our organisation, since the beginning of February this year and have signed up a number of students for School Based Traineeships within GSI. We continue to further assist young people with a disability, to make a successful transition from school to further training / employment. As a part of this initiative, we are proud to announce:
