OCTOBER 23, 2013.  EmpowerLA presented an award to the Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council who effectively galvanized their community to address the needs of youth. Most impressive was their work to create “Pathways to Employment,” an event in partnership with San Pedro Rotary and Harbor Communities Benefit Foundation to provide this important population with employment skills through training workshops, practice interviews, and presentations by many of the 36 businesses present. In addition to addressing the career needs of youth, they are providing recreational options as well through the soon-to-be-opened skate park at Peck Park, a project which they initiated and worked with the Council Office and Department of Recreation and Parks to realize.
