EWDD is pleased to premiere a new social media video about the Targeted Local Hire Program (TLHP), which is designed to help under-served and under-employed Angelenos find an alternative pathway to civil service careers at the City of Los Angeles.

The video features Tyren Brown, a TLHP participant who is now a full-time Admin Clerk with civil service status at the Los Angeles Housing Community Investment Department (HCIDLA). His daily duties include reviewing complaints and scheduling inspector visits to ensure that housing is livable for tenants.

“It brings me a lot of joy to know that I’m helping people,” Tyren said of his role. Working at the City makes him feel that he is part of a group of people whose lives are dedicated to providing services to local residents.

Tyren's success story was also featured in May 6, 2019, EWDD Updates issue.

In partnership with the City’s Personnel Department, EWDD has processed more than 8,900 TLHP applicants at nine WorkSource Centers that are approved application sites. More than 500 positions have been filled to-date, including clerical, vocational and custodial jobs at various City departments.

Discover all the various programs and benefits offered through EWDD Employment Services and WorkSource Centers. Visit the City of Los Angeles' Targeted Local Hire Program website to locate the nearest WorkSource Center or referral agency accepting applications for the program.
