“IF YOU WANT TO LIFT YOURSELF UP, LIFT UP SOMEONE ELSE.” ~ BOOKER T. WASHINGTON
We held our final academy meeting on May 5, 2021, and wrap up our 6th programmatic year the end of June. Last week we were able to connect with the Economic & Workforce Development Department – City of Los Angeles General Manager Ms. Hull to share her thoughts on addressing people with high employment barriers. LA:RISE is demonstrating that a public-private partnership can help solve some of society’s biggest challenges!
“In the city of L.A, societal problems can only be addressed through collaboration,” ~Carolyn Hull. Agreed!
Thank you to our dedicated partners, we are so proud of your commitment to serving our community! Throwback to 2015 when LA:RISE was launched as a city only program and in 2018 expanded countywide.
