Young Makers Outreach @ Project Impact Reentry Job Fair
Would Works Artisans from the Young Makers Program represented last week at Project Impact’s Reentry Resource Fair at Los Angeles Mission College!
Put on by Mayor Bass' Office of Economic Opportunity in partnership with Los Angeles Mission College, this event gave justice impacted community members access to on site legal assistance, expungements, live scans, as well as connections to employment and education (like us!), assistance with housing navigation, and connection to physical/mental health services.
Justice impacted individuals face high rates of homelessness and heightened barriers to employment, which is why programs like Would Works are such valuable stepping stones to long term employment and stable housing. By providing recent job references, tangible skills, and healing community, Would Works gives people who are reentering society a place to land and build back their lives.
At Would Works' table, attendees could see and touch a selection of our wood products, apply to our paid training programs, and speak with current Artisans about their experiences at Would Works.
February Update! Check us out February 19 2023 at the Healing Space Event put on by LA County's Department of Justice Care and Opportunities. Our Artisans will be hosting a pop up woodworking workshop for attendees, and staff will be collecting on site job applications.
