Connecting Employers with New Pools of Quality Talent

Now in its sixth programmatic year as of July 2020, LA:RISE is recruiting companies to join our Employer Partnership Program. We seek companies that primarily need skilled entry-level talent and are open to hiring and supporting employees who have overcome challenges, such as opportunity youth and individuals who have been previously homeless or incarcerated. LA:RISE offers employers direct access to a local pool of well-trained and highly motivated candidates who are prepared for work—along with resources that help employees not only retain their jobs, but advance and thrive long term.
