My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Center For Living and Learning, Van Nuys, CA, USA
I serve as a Board Member at the Center for Living and Learning (CLL) because I have confidence in the programs available to the formally incarcerated, former substance abusers, or anyone who has a barrier to employment. Programs include but are not limited to the Apprenticeship Program: 12-18 month paid on-the-job training opportunity. I am proud to say that 92% of those with a criminal record have not been re-incarcerated during their apprenticeship, and develop confidence and self-esteem, enabling them to, upon completion of the program, transition directly to regular employment. What does all this mean? It means an individual is now able to live a healthy and productive life, standing proud and tall in front of their children, family and friends. The Center for Living and Learning is what I like to call a community re-investment program.
