Summer Youth Employment
During the summer months, LA County is rolling out an “Earn & Learn” program designed to provide work-based learning to approximately 3,100 youth ages 14-21 beginning July through the end of September 2013. The goal of the program is to introduce young people to the workplace, gain valuable employment skills and earn an income. In addition, youth will receive 12 hours of "Personal Growth" training to help them acquire some of the basic "soft skills" necessary to succeed in the workplace. Upon completion of the program, youth will receive a certificate of Work Readiness.
