Youth @ Work Press Conference and Job Fair

On June 8, 2017, Youth @ Work kicked off with a press conference at Grand Park led by our Director Cynthia Banks, LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis, and Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti. We are striving to provide 20,000 jobs to youth throughout the County of Los Angeles and it all started with a Youth @ Work Job Fair that was hosted by Los Angeles Southwest College on June 10, 2017. Over 150 youth attended and were provided career and education resources through workshops and exhibitors. We will be hosting a second Youth @ Work Job Fair sometime in the fall. More information on that will come very soon on our Workforce website and our social media platforms, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram (@lacountywdacs).

Thank you to all of our staff who helped organize and coordinate these events and together, we will reach that goal of 20,000 youth receiving employment in our County.
