Meet Warren - Lomita
Warren Taylor’s goals were to graduate from high school, continue his education by enrolling in college and find a job to help financially at home. He had participated in past summer youth programs, but was unsuccessful in obtaining a job because he was too young.
Warren had previously participated in the Fit for Gold Tutoring & Fitness Academy and summer youth programs. He received encouragement from staff to bring his grades up. Warren was also placed in the Blueprint for Workplace Success training where he gained the skills to find employment.
Outcome and Benefits:
In one semester Warren was able to catch up and graduate with his classmates and start college at Los Angeles Harbor College, where he will be studying Business. He also found employment at Burlington Coat Factory. Warren believes this is only a stepping stone to get him to his career.
“The Torrance One-Stop provided me with work readiness training where they helped me with my resume
and taught me to apply for jobs on my own. My recommendation to other youth is to never give up even
if you are faced with challenges.”
