PVJOBS Core Program

PVJOBS has a collaboration of about 135 community-based organizations (CBOs) that provide a full supportive network for our candidates. Through this collaborative, candidates receive life skills training, barrier reduction assistance and apprentice preparation training to prepare them for employment in the construction trades. Once training is finished, the CBO completes an "Application for Referral" and forwards it to PVJOBS. PVJOBS maintains a database of qualified candidates in all construction trades for referral to employment, as positions become available. PVJOBS makes available on an as-needed bases no-interest loans for union initiation fees and any special tools or clothing required as a prerequisite to employment. Local construction trade unions are cooperating with this effort allowing union entry and dispatch of PVJOBS candidates as required. Candidates are selected based on their cumulative at-risk factor (the number of at-risk factors present at the time of application) and their geographical area of residence. The at-risk factors considered are did not complete high school, history of substance abuse, household income below 50% of the median, homeless, welfare recipient, history of involvement with the justice system, unemployed and single parent. PVJOBS is also committed to providing a minimum of 3000 hrs. Of employment to candidates so they can get a good start on their career of choice. Once a candidate is placed supportive services continue through PVJOBS and the referring organization for one-year post-referral. Because the need for career-oriented positions for multi-barriered individuals is greater than the opportunities at Playa Vista (as indicated by the great number of referrals we receive from throughout the Los Angeles area), PVJOBS has expanded the PVJOBS program to provide opportunities beyond Playa Vista. PVJOBS now has placement opportunities at other major public and private construction projects, agencies and corporations (about 20 other projects). Current projects include the LAX/Crenshaw Metro line, USC Village project, mulitple projects at the Port of LA and LA Public Works and others. Through advocacy, PVJOBS negotiates for inclusion of our multi-barriered citizenry in meaningful employment opportunities at major construction projects and provides placement in the opportunities created. All services provided by PVJOBS and its collaborative are provided at no cost.

Other programs include a youth at-risk program (Right Turn), and e7 Architecture Studio (Providing BIM Modeling services to LACCD)
