The American Job Center Youth Department will host its 11th annual Youth Summit from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. Tuesday, March 26, 2019, at the Lake Charles Civic Center, 900 Lakeshore Drive, Lake Charles.

The year’s event, called "Level Up,” hopes to connect the area’s young people, ages 16-24, with employers, resources, and post-secondary education/training to help them prepare for and obtain gainful employment. 

Young people who attend can participate in several workshops on topics such as youth programs, work readiness, job training, resources and high-demand occupations in Southwest Louisiana.

Many local employers will be on-hand to interview and accept applications for full-time, part-time, and summer employment. Representatives from McNeese State University, SOWELA Technical Community College, ABC, and other local schools will be present to answer questions concerning specific curricula that will qualify them for jobs in high-demand occupations.

Those who plan to attend should come dressed for interviews and they should bring copies of their resumes, as well as smiles and positive attitudes.
