THE WHY

THE SOLUTION

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.

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 (18-24 years) experiencing poverty and homelessness.
