Vote Yes on Tuesday, Aug. 3

Outdated Job Training Facilities

It’s been more than half a century since many of STLCC’s facilities were updated. Technology, workplaces and the workforce have changed a lot since then. To provide safe, accessible training for in-demand jobs, facilities must be updated.

Waitlists For Critical Job Training Programs

STLCC graduates are the foundation of the St. Louis workforce, but many of the college’s healthcare, information technology and financial service programs are at or over capacity. Demand for these graduates continues to rise, and thousands of job openings are available in these fields. STLCC must expand its programs in order to meet this important demand.

An Affordable Solution

For just pennies a day, we can provide real-world learning opportunities to grow our St. Louis economy and protect the investment we’ve made in our community college by keeping our programming current and our facilities up-to-date in good working condition.
