The Tee Masters Golf Club, St. Louis recently presented Employment Connection's youth program with a generous gift of $1,000 to support our services for at-risk youth from the St. Louis community. Their contribution, combined with a $1,200 individual pledged gift by Shirley Carpenter of San Diego, CA, will be used to provide needed skills assessments and engagement incentives for at-risk youth.
Employment Connection's youth program  assists at-risk, in- and out-of- school youth ages 16-21 with services and supports needed to help them attain employment and begin the process of developing career goals toward future self-sufficiency. Our dedicated youth career specialists workyouth one-on-one with participants to improve their skills and reduce their risk of committing criminal activity and violence through employment and education.
In the words of Frederick Douglass, "It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men."

Employment Connection's services for youth are made possible by community support, including generous funding through the St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment (SLATE) and private foundations.
