Our aim is to provide resources and educational opportunities for the community to get people working. On a national level, the unemployment rate for African Americans is 9.6% and LAUL is on it! Thanks to a partnership with Walsh/Shea Construction, LAUL developed the Construction Career Information Center 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.
As the premier organization in advancing equal opportunities through an innovative programmatic slate, our mission is to provide resources to aid individuals in the following areas: Workforce Development, Entrepreneurship and Business Development, Personal Development, Education and Youth Development.
