When a part-time peer position became available in 2010, Gerardo easily adapted to this position and excelled at training. In 2011, a full-time Step Up staff position became available. Gerardo is a standout staff member and has taken on the additional responsibilities of managing the aeroponic rooftop garden at Step Up on Vine, and assisting with meal preparation at Step Up on Second.
