2018 Summer Youth Job Corps

Meet members of our 2018 EXPO Center Summer Youth Job Corps(SYJC) cohort. The Friends of EXPO Center has hired 40 interns, whom have been selected and have attended an orientation night. Along with the orientation, interns and their parents will attend a SYJC Parent Night, and two paid training sessions prior to the start of the internship. The Natural History Museum will continue to partner with the Friends of EXPO, and has hired 20 interns for this summer.

We have also developed two new exciting partnerships for this summer. We are excited to place two interns at the California African American Museum(CAAM), and two interns at Community Services Unlimited(CSU). Interns placed at CAAM will become museum docents, and will work within the production, marketing, and gallery curation departments. Community Services Unlimited(CSU) manages and operates the EXPO Center Urban Farm/Garden. They are also currently building South LA’s first organic grocery store located at 65th and Vermont. Interns placed at CSU will work with their team on marketing, entrepreneurship, and will learn about healthy nutrition, and Farm to Table programs.

Teen Leadership: Strengths and Goals

The EXPO Center Teen Leadership Program motivates and prepares teens for work readiness, career development, and entrepreneurship through hands-on experiences and vocational life skills development. We recently sat down with three members of the current cohort and spoke with them about their strengths, goals, and what leadership means to them. #futureleaders
