Construction Careers Information Center
In partnership with Walsh/Shea Construction, LAUL developed the Construction Career Information Center (CCIC) to provide a full range of self-service information including Career Pathways and introductions to the California Building Trades. Additionally, enrolled participants are eligible to receive support services in the form of transportation, union dues, and tools. Curricular topics include: Emotional Intelligence; Construction Math, Measurements and Knots; Interview Technique and Workplace Retention Skills.
Armed with the necessary tools, graduates are ready to get out and build the infrastructure for their success.
In partnership with the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE, pronounced “NIFTY”) and American Airlines, the Los Angeles Urban League offers a Summer Entrepreneurial Business Institute for students ages 12-18 who reside in Los Angeles County. “BizCamp,” the two-week summer institute invites students to take a critical look at the needs of their community and then take action by developing an original business concept to positively create opportunity.
All of this leads up to the grand finale – the presentation of their business plan in the hopes of receiving a cash award to be applied to the development of their business moving forward.
