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.

BizCamp

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. 

Small Business Connections

Los Angeles Urban League has partnered with Avisare to help level the playing field for small businesses to compete for government contracts.

This cloud-based procurement platform allows small businesses to spend less time on research and more time bidding on relevant opportunities from government agencies and Tier 1 contractors.

Bet Tzedek provides legal support to small business entrepreneurs to nurture talent and empower those who seek to build a better future in marginalized and under-served communities.

To find out if you qualify for assistance, submit a Small Business Development Project Pro Bono Assistance Application.

Los Angeles Urban League serves, educates and empowers African Americans and other minorities to secure economic self-reliance and civil rights by providing targeted social programs and advocating for issues that benefit our communities.
