VIDEO: Supervisor Honors Community Partners For Their Roles In Successful Day Reporting Center Program For Probation Youth

Lauding the Day Reporting Center (DRC) as one of the most successful re-entry programs for youth in the L.A. County Probation system, Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas today recognized community partners of the pilot project launched in November 2008.

The Supervisor acknowledged the support of the Century Community Training Program (CCTP), a Lennox-based nonprofit organization that offers a free eight-week pre-apprenticeship construction training and employment services program for those transitioning from unemployment, welfare, low-income jobs, or incarceration; Playa Vista Jobs (PV JOBS), a non-profit organization providing job placement opportunities for disadvantaged youth and adults; and the Quantum Corporation, a nonprofit community and economic development organization that works with multicultural residents and businesses throughout the County.

“Today I have the honor of presenting commendations to these three companies, which have been working closing with the Probation Department in implementing the Day Reporting Center, one of its most successful re-entry programs for the County,” Supervisor Ridley-Thomas said.
