Mary Taylor, PVJOBS Executive Director (

PVJOBS is set to host a special informational session for the community to discuss the organization’s culinary apprenticeship program and job placement services in the hospitality industry.  

The informational session will take place from 10 am to 2 pm on Friday, April 29 at the PVJOBS headquarters located at 4112 S. Main Street in South Los Angeles. The event is free and open to community residents, particularly those who are interested in pursuing a culinary career. 

 The informational event is being held to educate individuals about the eight-week culinary apprenticeship program offered by PVJOBS. The PVJOBS staff will also discuss their services in providing job placement assistance to those who complete the culinary apprenticeship program.  


 “We’re inviting our community to this informational event to introduce them to the culinary field and educate them about how they can pursue a sustainable career in the hospitality industry,” said PVJOBS Executive Director Mary Taylor. “Through this event, we’ll share how we’ve created a pathway for our residents to get the training they need to help them get placed in a career-track culinary job.” 

Along with the informational session, the event will conduct a raffle for those in attendance. Raffle winners can receive a $100 gas card or an array of gift cards. PVJOBS participants who are already enrolled in one of the organization’s job programs can receive a free gift card (while supplies last) for their guest if they bring one. 

 PVJOBS partnered with several sponsors to support the event, including the Los Angeles Hospitality Training Academy, Conrad Los Angeles, and Mobil Corporation. For more information about the event, please call PVJOBS at (323) 432-3955.
