Pathways to Progress, Citi Foundation Program Initiative
For the fourth consecutive year the City of Los Angeles, Economic and Workforce Development Department is the proud recipient of the Citi Foundation's "Pathways to Progress" initiative, which gives young Angelenos the tools they need to access a job early in their working lives, ultimately better positioning them for their professional and economic future.

Pathways to Progress is Citi and the Citi Foundation’s response to the persistent issue of youth unemployment globally. Led by the Citi Foundation, and strengthened by the active involvement of dedicated Citi volunteers, the Pathways to Progress initiative supports programs that help young people, ages 16-24, build an entrepreneurial mindset, acquire leadership, financial and workplace skills, and begin to engage in the formal economy through a first job.

Through this collaborative effort, the City of Los Angeles will be able to continue to provide youth enrolled in our Hire LA's Youth program first job experience and exposure to career opportunities.
