Garcetti Announces 10,000 New Summer Jobs

Garcetti hopes to increase the number of summer jobs for young people.

Hire LA's Youth Program received one million dollars in order to provide 10-thousand job opportunities. The program helps young adults between the ages of 14 and 24.

"When I found this program, they were very helpful," said Katherine Scrivens. "They told me I can do it, and 'you can be somebody.' And I am somebody."

Scrivens was a student at the Institute of Service-Learning, Power, and Intersectional Research (INSPIRE).

Mayor Garcetti hopes to increase the number of summer jobs for young people like Scrivens.

"Mayor Garcetti wants to make sure that every Los Angeles community has pathways to opportunity, because the only way Los Angeles thrives is if each and every one of our neighborhoods thrive," said Garcetti's Director of Communications Yusef Robb.

However, it wasn't all good news for the students of INSPIRE. They also learned they were going to be losing the building which houses the majority of their classroom space.
INSPIRE said Councilman Joe Buscaino wants to move his office into the building by the end of the year to save money. ATVN reached out to the councilmember's office but did not receive a response.
Next week, city leaders will meet with students and members of the community about the issues concerning the building. In the meantime, young people can begin applying to the summer jobs now available.
