HEARTBEAT OF HOPE ST. LOUIS MONTHLY SPOT
JULY'S SPOTLIGHT: Employment Connection Program Graduates
This special Summer break program was funded by St. Louis ReCAST and allowed Employment Connection (EC) to provide the youth with soft-skills training and an introduction to entrepreneurship course. Participants had the opportunity to plan community events with EC's Cure Violence teams in their neighborhoods. EC will also place each of the youth into Summer employment positions until it is time for them to return to high school in the Fall. All participants were aged 16-17 and also received $100 gift cards as graduation presents. Congratulations, graduates!
