• YouthSource City Partnerships

    In an effort to address the dropout rate, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and the City of Los Angeles Economic and Workforce Development Department (EWDD) collaborated to develop a comprehensive dropout recovery model. Established in 2012, the City Partnership program serves youth, ages 16-24 with a focus on school re-engagement and work experience opportunities. LAUSD Pupil Services and Attendance (PSA) Counselors are co-located at 14 YouthSource Centers (YSC) and three America’s Job Center of California (AJCC) to provide comprehensive services that aim to address barriers that impede school attendance and academic achievement.
