Los Angeles Air Force Base - EL SEGUNDO

Workforce History:

The Los Angeles Air Force Base (LAAFB) employs approximately 2,000 active military professionals. Currently, those separating from the military work through the Airman and Family Readiness Center located at the base. The Center provides services that help with the transition from the military to civilian life and employment. The center sees between 20-50 people per month, but unfortunately they are not able to supply continuous assistance for everyone until a job is found.

SBWIB Partnership:

The South Bay Workforce Investment Board (SBWIB) created a partnership with the Los Angeles Air Force Base (LAAFB) to provide Enhanced Workforce Transition Assistance, which is the first of its kind in the nation. The new program, which began July 1, 2016, offers enhanced transition assistance and provides employment services until the veteran finds a job, even after they have separated from the military. Workforce services are also available for spouses of separating military, which includes spouses of active duty and newly-assigned personnel.

Outcome and Benefits:

The partnership is already assisting Air Service men and women at the LAAFB achieve greater prosperity and quality of life for themselves and their families as they make the transition out of the military. The community benefits from the retention of a highly skilled and professional workforce in the Los Angeles South Bay region, which is important for business retention, expansion and economic growth.
