Occupational Skills Training

LA CAUSA offers occupational skills training in construction and culinary arts. Both programs are fully funded by the Department of Labor and Amity Foundation.


LA CAUSA offers vocational training in the construction field, that allows participants the opportunity to develop concrete skills while addressing the dilapidated housing conditions in their community. Simultaneously, our participants gain a valuable skill set that can help them earn a living wage and lead to career opportunities. As part of the program, LA CAUSA offers hands-on training at construction sites for all phases of construction, such as framing, finish carpentry, basic plumbing, electrical, roofing and tile setting. Unique to LA CAUSA is a strong presence of young women being trained in the residential construction field.
