LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
With summer approaching and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s HIRE LA’s Youth Summer Youth Employment Program about to begin, the City of Los Angeles Economic & Workforce Development Department (EWDD) hosted an annual training for YouthSource staff to better equip them on how to guide youth toward developing financially responsible habits. On May 31 and June 1, EWDD hosted the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) for financial literacy training. Approximately 60 City of Los Angeles and County of Los Angeles YouthSource agency directors, managers, and staff were trained on how to answer questions about managing finances. EWDD hosts the annual training for agencies to better serve the youth population by helping them budget earnings from their first jobs toward their financial goals.
