As the industrial arts have been increasingly vanishing from our public school system, GOOD+LIFE has stepped up to teach LACP students the value of these trades such as welding, metal shaping, and woodworking in furniture design and fabrication applications. In economically depressed areas all across the nation, steady employment is nearly impossible to come by. Most entry level positions require some type of previous experience, schooling, and/or recommendations. The GOOD+LIFE branch of LACP opened in 2018 with the mission of creating gainful employment for eligible students while also providing a creative outlet: a social enterprise making an impact on youth quality of life.
The brand is helping students secure employment now and in the future by combining meaningful work experience and professional/skill development for manufacturing industry positions in high demand. Students in the program learn about every aspect of the furniture making process, from ergonomic design, blueprinting/drafting, measuring, cutting, shaping, welding, grinding, and more.
A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE TRAINING PROGRAM AND JOB PLACEMENT OPPORTUNITY
GOOD+LIFE Manufacturing Social Enterprise provides vocational training, and paid apprenticeships for young adults ages 18 - 24 who are experiencing or at risk for homelessness and/or unemployment. The pilot program's ultimate goal is to become a high quality job placement resource, for manufacturing companies with entry level openings. GOOD+LIFE MFG. recruits CalWORKS recipients enrolled in L.A. County's GAIN or GROW programs.
