By Sentinel News Service

WHAT:  The Los Angeles Conservation Corps (LA Corps) is hosting a College & Career Fair on Friday, November 2, 2018 for teens and young adults in Los Angeles. The event is free, open to the public, and complimentary lunch will be provided to attendees.  Attendees will meet college contacts and prospective employers and will have the chance to win a free Apple iPad!


WHO:  Teens and young adults are invited to attend. Current LA Corpsmembers will be available for interview at the LA Corps booth.

WHY:  Los Angeles’ unemployment rate has dropped to a historic low, yet the rate remains high in Los Angeles’ disadvantaged communities. More than 200,000 (16%) of young adults between the ages of 18-24 in the LA Metro Area are out of work or out of school, and over half haven’t worked in the last five years or haven’t’ worked at all.  The LA Corps helps by transforming youth and young adults by putting them on a path to careers or college through comprehensive work experience, job training, case management and the chance to earn their high school diploma.  The LA Corps offers them opportunities to develop a work ethic, a marketable skillset, and a resume to boost them forward to a promising career track.
