SLATE announces new program to help troubled St. Louis-area youth

(KMOV.com) – The St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment announced Monday a new set of services under its You Only Live Once (YOLO) program.

According to SLATE, Better Family life, Employment Connection, and MERS/Goodwill will deliver services to more than 100 residents between the age of 16 and 24 who have had run-ins with the juvenile justice system.

The agencies will provide case management and job placement help.

SLATE acquired a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Face Forward program in order to run YOLO, and SLATE’s Youth Services Department also recently received funding from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Second Chance Act.
