LA Youth At WorkSummer’s coming and you may feel like it’s time for your student to go out and get a job…but low-key, in the back of your mind you may be wondering, who’s going to hire them? They can barely remember to pick up after themselves. Have no fear, L.A. Youth at Work can help.

A program of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce and its strategic affiliate, UNITE-LA they offer youth/young adults between the ages of 16 – 24 free job readiness and work certification programs.

The job readiness workshop teaches youth what employers want and includes a practice interview with professional mentors who will share their tips and wisdom.  When they’re ready, they can attend a work certification workshop and earn The Certificate, which local businesses see as a respected badge that they are prepared for their job or paid internship.

As an added bonus, once they earn the certificate LA Youth at Work will share hundreds of job leads until they are hired. Practically guaranteeing you a summer free of them posting up on the couch at home and Snapchatting their hearts out.
