The Vernon-Central/Los Angeles Technical Trade College (LATTC) WorkSource Center, overseen by EWDD partner Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD), will soon be able to provide priority hiring to community members for the proposed Crenshaw Crossing Mixed-Use Project at the intersection of the Los Angeles Country Metro Crenshaw and Expo lines.

The Watt Companies and the West Angeles Community Development Corporation, the developers of the project, selected CRCD to administer the project’s local hire program.

EWDD partner CRCD is scheduled to conduct outreach to South LA residents who reside up to three miles of the project site. Those who express interest in the program will be referred to the Vernon-Central/LATTC WorkSource Center, where they will receive job training.

Once job seekers complete the process, they will be referred to career coaches who will facilitate job interviews for the project with employers.
