YWCA Greater Los Angeles (GLA) continually seeks to offer high-quality vocational and professional skills training that address the ever-evolving needs of both the Los Angeles labor force and employers. The rapid pace of technology-driven innovation has significantly impacted every industry. For workers to be best prepared to fill the new jobs, they must be strategically trained in areas that offer the best new pathways to opportunity and exhibit strong potential for job growth.
Challenged by the JPMorgan Chase “New Skills at Work” call to action, YWCA GLA considered how best to leverage resources to most effectively and rapidly harness a prospective talent pool, train them in the latest high-demand skills of the Digital Age and present them to the employer base demanding that talent.
Digital Learning Academy (DLA) will feature a customized curriculum based on the Xerox’s “School to Career” program.
