Los Angeles County is one of the largest and most diverse regions in the nation. To better prepare the future Southeast Los Angeles workforce, the HUB Cities Worksource Consortium is partnering with the City of Huntington Park, the City of South Gate and the California Latino Leadership Institute (CLLI), to present a rigorous 7-week Summer Fellows Program.

Designed as a paid fellowship targeting Southeast residents ages 16-18 who are high school juniors and seniors. Funding for this program comes from the City of Huntington Park Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds and foundation and private funds raised by CLLI. The goal of the program is to create an environment for collective problem solving within a socio, economically, ethnically diverse Fellows team.  The Civic Engagement partner for the program is the Pat Brown Institute at California State University of Los Angeles (CSULA). Fellows are employees of the Hub Cities Worksource Consortium and will be placed within City Hall departments at both Huntington Park and South Gate. CLLI will provide the seven-week program’s oversight and management. In 2017, we are seeking to accept fourteen Fellows from the Southeast cities of Huntington Park and South Gate.

The Southeast Fellows Program will:

  • Provide a long-term sustainable workforce leadership development pathway for young adults within the municipal structure of Huntington Park and South Gate;
  • Support civic engagement and empower students to grow closing the career opportunity gap and becoming productive members of society; and
  • Inspire positive, ethical and sustainable change within the Southeast Los Angeles community.
