Labor Graduates Its Second Bootcamp Class
Date: Wed, 31 May 2017
Join us as the second class graduates from our Second Chance Pre-Apprenticeship Bootcamp! Now that the graduates have completed this 12-week program, they will be placed in union apprenticeships to not only have jobs, but real and lasting careers.
Los Angeles is home to the largest formerly incarcerated population in California, with tens of thousands of individuals released in the County each year. Formerly incarcerated individuals experience severe barriers to employment, and finding good jobs for these Angelenos is absolutely critical. Without opportunity, the chances of returning to jail or prison are significantly higher.
The Los Angeles Reentry Workforce Collaborative is a joint undertaking between four core partners: the LA Fed, the Los Angeles/Orange Counties Building and Construction Trades Council, Los Angeles Trade-Technical College, and the Anti-Recidivism Coalition. By earning certifications, employment experience, and transferable skills, this is meant to be a game changer in the lives of these participants.
