Our Mission Is to enhance the employment and educational opportunities of the Los Angeles and Orange County youth and young adults impacted by poverty, foster care, criminal justice systems, school underachievement and the lack of work experience by providing training, job placement, hands-on education and comprehensive support services.
VYCC strives to create career exploration and meaningful work opportunities by partnering with local businesses, training providers and local work source centers. Our partners play a key role in working with our youth and young adults by putting the skills that our youth obtain in the training programs to make use of their new acquired skills in the service industries.
