employment opportunities

If you are between the ages of 16 and 24, you have a lot to offer a business when you know what employers expect.  Go to our Workshop and learn what employers want, then attend a practice interview with professional mentors who will share their tips and wisdom.  When you're ready, earn The Certificate, which local businesses see as a respected badge that you are prepared for their job or paid internship.

L.A. Youth at Work is respected by over 150 companies, who appreciate the quality of our candidates.  Preparing yourself by earning the Certificate reduces your stress and leads to success with a job or paid internship, so get started now.
