At CRCD, we understand that education and workforce development are intertwined. To ensure that families have access to the resources they need, we conduct evaluations that focus on education, employment, time out of school, family support, and the special needs of the population of New York City communities. One such program is Jobs for Los Angeles Graduates (JLAG), which is part of the national network of the Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG) program. This program is designed to serve young people aged 16 to 24 who have dropped out of the traditional school system and are interested in completing the requirements for a high school diploma.
Beyond the Bell is another organization that works to ensure that all LAUSD children and youth have access to high-quality, safe, and supervised academic, enrichment, and recreational programs that inspire learning and achievement beyond the regular school day. It's important to note that a key difference between Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco is that New York and San Francisco are consolidations of cities and counties, meaning that the city and the county are a unified government body. To ensure that youth and young adults are prepared to enter the community educated, trained, and ready to thrive, CRCD Youth Workforce Development department offers a variety of programs. These programs focus on establishing results-based performance indicators that measure the City's progress toward achieving the goals and emphasize both the use and impact of the program.
The types of services offered range from arts and culture programs at the Department of Cultural Affairs to early literacy programs at the Los Angeles Public Library and cadet programs at the Los Angeles Police Department. Studies show that helping young people establish determined connections with their community enriches their lives and influences their future. To this end, Los Angeles County (Los Angeles County) provides human and health services for young people through agencies such as the Department of Children and Family Services and the Department of Public Social Services. The Mayor's Office for Gang Reduction and Youth Development (GRYD) also develops and administers programs designed to reduce gang violence through intervention and prevention services.
This organization has partnered with California State University in Los Angeles to evaluate data and outcomes. The Sol Price Social Innovation Center at USC works to develop ideas and strategies to improve the quality of life of people in low-income urban communities. Data from a variety of public agencies and research institutions shows how many young people fall into some of these high-risk categories, as well as how their challenges may be interrelated. It's clear that there are many community programs in Los Angeles County that focus on youth development.
These programs provide invaluable resources for young people in need, helping them build a better future for themselves. Investing in youth development initiatives is essential for creating a brighter future for our communities. By providing resources such as job training, educational opportunities, mentorship programs, and more, we can help young people reach their full potential. At CRCD, we believe in creating a better future for our communities by investing in our youth.
We strive to provide resources such as job training, educational opportunities, mentorship programs, and more so that young people can reach their full potential.
