The Los Angeles Community College District has received $937,890 in Recovery Act funds to help young people ages 16-24 acquire permanent employment through the state’s Green Job Corps Pilot Program. It is also receiving more than $1 million in matching support from state and local sources, including the California Conservation Corps.

"One of the LACCD’s key goals is to work with businesses and employers to help at-risk, low-income students get permanent jobs,” said Marvin Martinez, vice chancellor of Economic and Workforce Development. “This grant will give us the ability to make that happen.”

The grant and matching funds will allow the LACCD the ability to provide training, internships or subsidized employment to approximately 300 students.

Green Job Corp

The LACCD serves about 250,000 students a year and is among 11 regional pilot programs in the state to receive Green Job Corp funds from the Federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The plan will provide job training and community service opportunities in California’s emerging green economy for at-risk youth.

Jobs in Energy Efficiency, Weatherization and Water Conservation

The program will focus on energy efficiency and weatherization as well as water conservation, and it will work with local companies to help students get jobs after completing the training. Statewide, the 11 regional pilot programs will provide green career training for 1,500 at-risk youth.
