Los Angeles Valley College Job Training is searching for unemployed men and women for what might be the final class of the LA Fellows program. Funded through a grant by the City of Los Angeles, the program provides unemployed individuals with free skills training and volunteer opportunities while they seek full-time positions.
LA Fellows participants will be selected through an application and interview process. They will receive seven weeks of training at Los Angeles Valley College covering executive level topics including critical thinking, advanced job search skills, and how to generate effective business leads. In return, participants will volunteer their time and talents by sharing their professional expertise through project based roles at local nonprofits.
The LA Fellows participants will acquire new skill sets, encounter countless opportunities to network with professionals, and project a marketable career candidate impression while presenting a community-focused image.
We hope you can join us at our last orientation session on Wednesday, May 11th, 2011 at 10:00 am at Los Angeles Valley College, which is located at 5800 Fulton Avenue, Valley Glen, CA 91401-4096. You may park in Lot B which is located at the corner of Oxnard Street and Fulton Avenue. Parking tickets will not be issued during the orientation meeting. You only need to attend one orientation, which is designed to answer all your questions about the LA Fellows program and application process.
An application is available online and you are encouraged to fill it out prior to attending the orientation – but it is not required to attend.
Because the program has only received funding for four classes, this could be the last opportunity to become an LA Fellow. If you know other job seekers who might be interested in the program, please encourage them to attend our last orientation.
