Featured Voices

“This course gave me the ability to change my life,” says Jonathan Santos. He loved his job but the unpredictable schedule was no longer realistic when he became a father. Surrounded by his fellow students, he smiles when he talks about his commitment to his new profession and how surprised he was to have met with employers even before graduating. “They told us this is entry level training, but it doesn’t end here, there are a lot of opportunities to grow.”

In partnership with LA Valley College and El Camino College, Propel L.A. is funding students’ education in growing careers, funded by Citi Foundation Community Progress Makers.
