NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A job center created with a federal grant is opening its doors in North Charleston.

Back in July, the U.S. Department of Labor awarded $1.6 million to the city to create two centers under a program to put young adults to work called Education 2 Employment.

The first job center opening on Wednesday offers young adults six weeks of pre-employment training combining classroom learning and on the job training. Participants between the ages of 16 and 29 can get paid work experience in jobs in areas including, among others, manufacturing, transportation and health care hospitality.

The young adults participating can receive GED classes, paid internships, help in writing resumes and job interviews and other counseling.

The second job center is under development.
