LARRP deeply appreciates the generous support of our funders!
LARRP, Amnity Partner with US Labor Department on new Grant
February 2023, We are thrilled to announce that the Los Angeles Regional Reentry Partnership (LARRP) has partnered with Amity Foundation on their grant with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Growth Opportunities program. The project aims to prepare justice-involved young adults for employment by providing education, training, paid work experience, leadership development, and mentorship. The ultimate goal is to support justice-involved individuals in accessing equitable career opportunities.
LARRP will provide leadership development, conflict resolution, and mentoring services to Los Angeles participants. Mentoring services will include weekly to monthly group and one-on-one mentoring support and conflict resolution training to equip participants with conflict management skills and applied experience as community mediators.
LARRP will work with other organizations to recruit and accept referrals for participants. The Leaders Training Academy program will provide monthly training, community engagement activities, and education and awareness support services to build participants' positive self-perceptions and identify participants' areas of personal interest, strengths, goals, and areas for growth. The services will address the social determinants of health, facilitation skills, public speaking, and health and stigma reduction for individuals who are justice-involved.
