30TH ANNUAL PRODUCTIVITY & QUALITY AWARDS PROGRAM FOR THE YOUTH OPPORTUNITY PROGRAM
On Wednesday October 19, 2016, Community and Senior Services will be awarded a top 10 award during the 30th Annual Productivity and Quality Awards Program for the Youth Opportunity Program. The Youth Opportunity Program is a cost-effective approach to improving the employment opportunities for high-risk youth leaving Probation camps. The program helps youth successfully transition back into their communities by providing them with case management, mental health support, job readiness training, a one-year paid internship, and preparation to compete for a broad range of permanent entry-level positions. This began with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works, Probation, Community and Senior Services, and Mental Health, and will soon expand to other County Departments.
We would like to thank our staff and partners for collaborating on such an influential program for our community’s youth and congratulations on achieving this prestigious award.
