The LA youth at Work program trains youth (16-24 years of age) to become work ready. The students we work with go through a Job Skills Workshop (JSW) and a Work Readiness Certification (WRC). Once students pass both sessions, they are classified as work ready and earn a Work Readiness Certificate from the LA Area Chamber of Commerce. This work readiness Certificate, gives them access to job openings that our partners are offering ONLY to our Work Ready Certificated youth.
