El Proyecto YouthSource Center participants attending LA Metro's Infrastructure for the Next Generation Workforce Development Fair
Approximately 21 El Proyecto YouthSource Center participants attended Infrastructure for the Next Generation Workforce Development Fair on May 18, 2019. The event, hosted by Metro, was designed to expose and encourage high school students to pursue careers in building and designing physical structures and roads.

The fair was part of Metro’s National Infrastructure Week, which also provided opportunities for youth to engage with industry professionals to create networking opportunities, learn about diverse career paths and internship opportunities, and enhance communication and leadership skills.

Youth also attended panel discussions, learned about career resources and networked with high-level Metro staff who offered mentoring opportunities to help them pursue infrastructure careers.
