Help for Youth

Our program enables youth to be successful in education and the workplace, inspires and teaches future leaders of the communities

SLATE Missouri Job Center understands the importance of preparing our region’s future workforce. That’s why we offer several dynamic programs and initiatives to the St. Louis City youth ages 17 to 24 in an effort to provide access to services and activities that connect young adults to jobs and education opportunities. All participants in our youth programs are selected based on eligibility requirements, with each program designed to help young adults who face significant challenges achieve personal goals. So whether you’re looking for your next move after high school or want to learn more about future career opportunities, we are here to provide you with the tools and resources that you need to reach your goals.
