A delegation from African recently visited the Vernon-Central/LATTC WorkSource Center to discuss best practices on serving disconnected youth and delivering workforce services
On Friday, April 13, 2018, the Vernon-Central Los Angeles Technical Trade College WorkSource Center (WSC) hosted a roundtable meeting with a delegation from Africa for a comprehensive discussion on how to reach disconnected youth, along with workforce development systems.

The delegation was also interested in how to best serve youth who are no longer in school and those involved in the justice system.

During the discussion, it became apparent that the unemployment and education problems in Africa are very similar to those faced by EWDD’s YouthSource and WorkSource Centers, said staff from EWDD partner Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD).

The sharing of ideas and experience was beneficial to all, staff said.
