"A Spectrum of Possibilities"
Four PVJOBS participants were recognized for their outstanding job performances at the October 18th PVJOBS Spectrum of Possibilities awards event. These individuals — including a military veteran — landed their job assignments through PVJOBS, a nationally acclaimed nonprofit that matches Los Angeles area construction job opportunities with workers who are considered at-risk residents.
The awards event also recognized GH Palmer Associates for exceeding goals of its disadvantaged and local worker hiring program for The Lorenzo Project, a multi-million dollar development project near USC. Additional awards were presented to the six PVJOBS founding board members for their work in creating the job program 15 years ago. About 350 business, labor and community service representatives attended the event, which was held at the Center at Cathedral Plaza in downtown Los Angeles.
