EWDD General Manager Jan Perry with EWDD staff and partners at the Taste of Soul Family Festival
EWDD staff and partners returned to the popular Taste of Soul Family Festival on Saturday, October 21, 2017 to promote the job training and business services available at EWDD’s YouthSource, WorkSource and BusinessSource Centers.

EWDD participates in community events throughout the year to increase awareness about the City’s YouthSource, WorkSource and BusinessSource centers. This year, EWDD shared a table with partners Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD), Asian American Drug Abuse Program, Inc. (ADAP), the United Auto Workers (UAW), and the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA).

EWDD partner Los Angeles Hospitality Training Academy (HTA), also attended and accepted referrals for 60 candidates for HTA’s culinary and hospitality programs. EWDD and the City of Los Angeles Workforce Development Board (WDB) help finance HTA programs with grant funding.

EWDD has sponsored a table at Taste of Soul for several years.
