College, career fair set in Belleville

Read Time:1 Minute, 2 Second


BELLEVILLE – Celess’ Helping Hands, a non-profit organization, will host a Senior High College and Career Fair at the Salvation Army at 20 Glory Place in Belleville 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6.

Organization Founder Augustine James said the event is for Madison and St. Clair County students.

Celess’ Helping Hands was founded by James in honor of her mother, Celess Broadnax, because of the lack of resources, services, and education outside of government funded organizations for teens, disadvantaged, disabled, low to middle income individuals and families in the Metro East area.

“Our goal is to help people who are homeless, who are disadvantaged or just in need of tools and resources to help them meet their basic needs,” James said.


According to James, the group’s current focus is on the youth.

“They’re are future,” James said. “A lot of our kids are getting lost in the shuffle.”

At the event, there will be several colleges and tech schools from Illinois and Missouri sharing information about their programs. The group will have information about grants and scholarships. There will be door prizes and giveaways.
