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 (16-24 years) experiencing poverty and homelessness.

BRING YOUR "A GAME"

Students attend a soft-skills, professional development program called “Bring Your A-Game to Work" taught by The Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE).

 

Students will also receive supportive services throughout the program and even after they graduate and are hired to ensure they remain employed.

6-WEEK APPRENTICESHIP

Students learn classic car repair and shop skills in a hands-on training program.

 

The class begins fabricating simple structures almost immediately. All students must pass a drug test to participate in the program and also receive forklift training and certification.

6-WEEK ON-THE-JOB TRAINING

During the program, apprentices have the opportunity to join Lost Angels as paid skilled laborers and continue their training by applying skills learned towards classic car restoration.

 

The program teaches highly transferable skills designed to help students land jobs in aeronautics, aerospace, automotive, and manufacturing industries.
