General

  • Mission:
  • Our mission is to support business growth, entrepreneurial expansion and individual advancement by providing the tools, training and resources needed to sustain a highly skilled workforce. Our vision is to be recognized as the premier provider of workforce development services. Our motto is “Empowerment through Employment.” We value excellence in performance, continuous quality improvement, collaboration, partnership and innovation. Committed to community and economic development, we provide employment services to over 20,000 unemployed job seekers and more than 150 businesses each year – over 83% of our job seeker customers secure employment and attain financial self-sufficiency. As the County’s Trade, Transportation & Logistics Sector Intermediary, we are dedicated to creating a bridge to employment and career advancement for unemployed, out-of-school youth and adults in high-growth industry while satisfying employer hiring needs.

  • Overview:
  • CCD, the County’s Transportation and Logistics Intermediary, is uniquely positioned to address employer need for a skilled workforce while providing unemployed youth with an opportunity to develop both personally and professionally, establish financial self-sufficiency and contribute to their communities. The purpose of the program is to provide unemployed, out-of-school youth, particularly minority males between the ages of 17 and 24, who reside in low-income communities characterized by high rates of unemployment (Compton, South Los Angeles, Boyle Heights, Westlake and Koreatown) , with an opportunity to transition from poverty to financial self-sufficiency. The program will prepare participants for entry-level employment in the high-growth trade, transportation and logistics sector, while providing employers with a pipeline of workers equipped with the skills and motivation to succeed in the workplace. Utilizing evidence-based best practices derived from our extensive experience in delivering youth and sector-based employment initiatives as well as those recommended by the National Youth Employment Coalition Promising and Effective Practices Network, the BLTT will be delivered in two phases. Phase 1 will be a six-week enriched program designed to improve basic skills, develop life skills, advance educational achievement, obtain 120 hours of relevant, mentored work experience and determine career pathways. The training curriculum will incorporate contextualized learning modules to promote job-readiness, responsibility, leadership and teamwork. Other training features will include financial education, a community service/environmental conservation project, and exposure to industry through educational field trips. After the six seeks, participants will seek and secure employment and enroll in community college. Participants may earn industry-relevant nationally recognized certifications, an Associate’s Degree, and matriculate to a four year university. In addition to roviding vocational education and employment opportunities, graduates may continue to serve as mentors to new participants. Throughout the duration of the program, participants will receive support services (gas cards, Metro passes, interview attire, etc.), career and life coaching. Follow-up services will be provided for at least one year post program completion.

    The Program will be delivered in 5 cohorts of 15 participants each over a 3 year period. Training will be offered at CCD's Wilshire Metro WorkSource in the mid-Wilshire District of the City and at CCD's Compton Center; both easily accessible via public transportation. Additional training may be provided at Los Angeles Southwest College and at the East Los Angeles College Monterey Park and South Gate campuses. CCD will engage the participation of educators, employers, social service providers, youth organizations, charter schools, mentor programs, financial institutions and government entities to ensure curriculum relevance, the provision of support services, and the overall effectiveness of the BLTT.

    The Program will impact economic development by satisfying demand for a highly motivated, work ready young workforce equipped with the skills to succeed in the workplace while assisting out-of-school youth residing in areas characterized by unemployment and high crime rates overcome barriers to employment. The program will effectively address the need for public exposure to opportunities in the Logistics/Transportation sector, identified as a high growth priority by the City and County as well as the Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation, the State of California (EDD Labor Market Information), and the Southern California Association of Governments. Because the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are the nation's number one ports of entry for consumer goods in the country, sustaining 2.9 million jobs in the region, and because 80% of the construction and logistics jobs are entry-level, the program will positively impact the local, regional and national economy. The BLLT program will give youth a chance to learn about labor market predictions and take advantage of this unique opportunity by participating in training and attending tours of Port terminals and nearby warehouses. In addition, employers will have a chance to become engaged in the vocational educational process to ensure that curriculum remains relevant to their needs. The BLTT will contribute to Neighborhood Revitalization by teaching program participants about the history, values and aspirations of their communities, and introducing them to environmentally sustainable practices. CCD expects that at least 80% of basic skills deficient youth will gain at least one grade level; 70% without a High School Diploma will graduate or receive a GED; 75% will enroll in vocational training at the community college level; and 83% of bridge program graduates will become employed within 9 months.

  • History:
  • Community Career Development, Inc. (CCD), incorporated in 1972, is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides a broad range of no-cost employment and employment-related services to the public. For more than 40 years, Community Career Development, Inc. (CCD) has provided low-income, under- and unemployed individuals, including those with significant barriers to employment, with the support, resources, job-readiness preparation and vocational training needed to secure and retain employment. As a proud partner of America’s Job Centers of California, CCD operates the Compton and Southwest College Affiliate, the South Los Angeles and the Wilshire-Metro WorkSource Centers, serving over 20,000 unemployed youth and adult job seekers annually. Over 83% of our job seekers secure employment at starting wages averaging between $11 and $25 per hour.

    For job seekers, CCD provides unlimited use of an Employment Resource Center, career coaching, case management, industry-recognized certification, job placement and job retention services. For businesses, CCD provides targeted outreach and recruitment, candidate pre-screening and referrals and hiring events/job fairs. Onsite partners provide additional services: the USC School of Social Work offers confidential life coaching; the Employment Development Department offers assistance with unemployment insurance, resume workshops and Veterans Services (Gold Card Priority Certification and Disabled Veterans services); Five Keys Charter School offers GED preparation and basic skills instruction.

    CCD’s workforce initiatives are funded primarily by the federal Workforce Investment Act through contracts with the City and County Workforce Investment Boards. CCD has been awarded grant funding for specialized job training and job placement programs from the State of California, the U.S. Department of Labor, the Federal Transit Administration, the South Bay Workforce Investment Board, and the Los Angeles County Probation Department. CCD relies upon foundation grants to administer community-based initiatives, provide emergency support services to job seekers and introduce innovative, best and promising practices. CCD collaborates with government entities, labor, educational institutions, community colleges, adult and vocational schools, faith and community-based organizations, youth programs, nonprofit and veterans’ service providers to share and leverage resources. In addition to direct job placement services, CCD provides sector-specific certificated vocational training leading to careers in the healthcare, private security, logistics, biomedical manufacturing, petroleum, construction and IT industries.

    CCD currently administers numerous subsidized work experience programs serving over 300 youth participants each year, including a Summer Youth Employment, Transitional Subsidized Employment (for young adults 19-24 receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), a General Relief Youth Employment and a Probation Program. Participants receive personal enrichment training that includes financial education, communication skill building, customer service, business etiquette and pre-employment preparation (resume writing, submitting online applications, utilizing social media in job search, professional networking and interviewing).

    As the City’s Bioscience/Chemical Technologies and the County’s Transportation/Logistics Intermediary, CCD engages the participation of employers to ensure that community college coursework is aligned with employer hiring standards. In 2006, CCD was awarded seed funding by the City’s Workforce Investment Board to establish Logistics Advisory Board and implement one of the City’s first sector-specific workforce development initiatives. CCD then partnered with Los Angeles Valley College and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) to train and place 300 bus operators; to date, the academy has placed over 800 bus operators with Metro. CCD employer partners in these industries include Grifols Biologicals, Baxter Bioscience, Metro, MV Transit and UPS. Advisors include Arcadis Engineering, Fast Lane Transport, BYD Motors, American Export Lines, DreamBox Global, Metropolitan Stevedore, the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, Price Transfer, Union Pacific Railroad, BNSF Railway, Watson Land Company, Majestic Realty, Total Transportation Export, Inc. and Sterling Transportation.
