We wish to extend our warmest thanks to Bank of the West, member of FHLB for awarding West Angeles CDC a grant of $30,000 for our
Young ‘N LA program.
Your support will expand this successful workforce development program serving 14-18 year-old African American males from very low-income households in South Los Angeles. Through a combination of peer group-based life skills engagement with potential employers, participants will gain skills and experience to either build a path to a career or start their own business. Program staff will recruit, prepare, and connect youth to employers and to resources for obtaining right-to-work documents, and the program will provide stipends for transportation, transitional housing, food, utilities, and clothing. Additionally, this grant will help fund staff and program expenses.
