The HDS Foundation Team did a presentation on software testing for dozens of STEPS Program Participants. Our staff presented plans for a summer internship program which was currently in the works with the Dan Marino Foundation STEPS Program staff. We had the opportunity to meet many young men and women, talk about the company, what software can do, and why there is a need for software testing. The kids of the Dan Marino Foundation STEPs Program visit the Artserve facility after school in Fort Lauderdale, where they participate in many activities to prepare them for the workplace. There were several individuals who expressed an interest in continuing their education and specifically into technology. The HDS Foundation, along with Housing and Development Software is looking to start a Summer Program similar to its year-round School Mentoring Program. Our 3 year old partnership with the Cypress Bay High School ESE Department and Facilitators has been a successful program, but is only run during the school year. The STEPS Program is funded by the Children’s Council of Florida.
