The Watts Labor Community Action Committee Managed Youth source center celebrated its grand opening Thursday November 15, with an unveiling of a “cobra” vehicle, assembled by the program’s students. They finished the project with the help of a joint collaboration of WLCAC and the Maxine Waters’ Employment Prep­aration Center. It was made possible through a grant awarded to WLCAC by the office of Laura Richardson and funding for management was acquired through the Com­munity Devel­opment Depart­ment, according to a WLCAC spokesperson.

Twenty five youths participated, the spokesperson said.  Each enrolled in the WLCAC managed youth program for period of 18, months.They received case management services as well as supportive services while in the program. Several participants have since been successful in obtaining employment.
