Labor Graduates It’s Third Second Chance Bootcamp


This week, the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor graduated its third cohort class of 24 formerly incarcerated individuals, including the first three women, from the Second Chance Pre-Apprenticeship Bootcamp.

The Second Chance Pre-Apprenticeship Bootcamp is a joint undertaking between four core partners: the LA Fed, the Anti-Recidivism Coalition, the Los Angeles/Orange Counties Building and Construction Trades Council, and Los Angeles Trade-Technical College. Each partner plays a key role in the program. As a result, the Bootcamp is uniquely positioned to help reduce recidivism by creating real and lasting career opportunities through union apprenticeships for formerly incarcerated individuals.

Congratulations to all our graduates on this tremendous accomplishment!
