ST. LOUIS — The City of St. Louis has several job opportunities for city residents this week.

Enrollment closing soon for STL YouthBuild program

STL YouthBuild classes start Feb. 14, so there's still time for those 17-24 years old to sign up.

The St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment’s (SLATE) YouthBuild Program is enrolling young people in a program to help them earn a GED and complete building trades training at the same time.

YouthBuild works in collaboration with Ranken Technical College, a training provider serving the St. Louis community for more than 100 years.

Participants will be guided through three tracks: basic skills development, construction skills training and life/soft skills development.

Each participant who completes the program will receive stackable, portable and industry-recognized credentials through the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER).

The program’s priority is on recruiting youth from north St. Louis communities. St. Louis Public Schools will assist SLATE with identification and outreach for eligible young adults for the program.
