LOST ANGELS WORK PROGRAM

A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAM AND JOB PLACEMENT OPPORTUNITY

FREE ENROLLMENT!

THE WHY

After years of working with students in our after-school program, we realized one of the biggest struggles our young people faced after turning 18 was landing that first job.

THE SOLUTION

In 2020, LACP partnered with the City of Lancaster, Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE), and America’s Job Center (AJCC) to create a program called Lost Angels Work Program. The program offers job training and transitional employment in an industrial manufacturing and automotive restoration social enterprise to transition-age youth (18-25 years) experiencing poverty and homelessness.

BRING YOUR "A GAME"

WEEKS 1 - 2

The first 2 weeks students attended a 5-day course created by LACOE (Los Angeles County Office of Education). It is a soft-skills development program called “Bring Your A-Game to Work.”

 

The workshops include resume building, familiarization with job search practices, and mock interviews. After the first 2 weeks, these skills are reinforced throughout the rest of the program with weekly sessions at LACOE.

APPRENTICESHIP

WEEKS 3 - 6

The apprenticeship phase of the program consists of 4 hours of training, 3 days a week at Lost Angels, students learn welding, basic tool safety, and industry-standard practices for utilizing wood and metal in manufacturing applications.

 

The class begins fabricating simple structures almost immediately (i.e. metal boxes, pencil holders, small sculptures).

ON-THE-JOB TRAINING

WEEKS  7 - 12

After week 6, apprentices who've made it this far will have the opportunity to join Lost Angels as a paid skilled laborer and continue their training. In this phase of the program, students put skills learned towards classic car restoration. At the end of the 12 weeks, students will graduate with all the basic necessary skills to enter the industrial manufacturing workforce and forklift certification.
