Young adults looking to energize their career opportunities should get hyped for Charge!, a youth career program offered through the Missouri Job Center of St. Charles County. The Job Center is hosting an open house for the program 4-6 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 3, for those wanting to take charge of their future careers.

The Job Center, operated by St. Charles County’s Department of Workforce and Business Development, is located at 3757 Harry S Truman Blvd. in St. Charles.

Visitors to the open house will learn about the Charge! program’s free educational, career training, and job placement opportunities for St. Charles County residents who are 16-24 years old.

  • Help find training for careers with strong job placement opportunities;
  • Assist in attaining professional certification in a range of growing career fields;
  • Place participants in part-time jobs that pay above minimum wage;
  • Provide valuable workplace experience.

Charge! is a federally funded youth development program; there is no cost to qualified participants.
