Videos featuring high-demand jobs in LA County, providing a livable wage, with a pathway of either an AA or Bachelor’s degree.
Through the work of the LA County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) and the research of the Institute for Applied Economics, Propel L.A. is launching HireEd Career Pathways Video Series in partnership with the LA County Office of Education and with funding from the Center for a Competitive Workforce, representing the 19 LA County community colleges.
This series is designed to provide middle and high school students with information on finding careers that are in high demand in LA County – industries where employers are seeking trained workers. Each video will feature an Associate’s degree career pathway, and a Bachelor’s degree career pathway, both offering a livable wage job.
Through the 7 Goals, Propel L.A. seeks to capture the power of our many stakeholders and partnerships to propel economic impact and equity in ways that touch all of LA County’s residents. Goal 1: Invest In Our People, from Prenatal to Post-Career, to Provide Greater Opportunity, specifically identifies the need to provide career path information and better inform students in underserved communities.
A new video will be available monthly, to be used throughout the school year.
