The Grand Partners with PVJOBS to

Provide New Career Opportunities for Local and At-Risk Communities

Mixed-use center The Grand nears its next construction milestone of

topping off in early March, and some of the workers responsible for this

progress have joined the team after receiving the unique opportunity

to explore a new career. The Grand has partnered with Los Angeles

non-profit organization PVJOBS, which has a mission to

provide​ at-risk individuals—including those who are

formerly incarcerated, ​single parents, welfare recipients

and homeless—with job opportunities that can lead to lasting

positive impacts on their lives and careers. A number of its

construction team members have become part of the project as a

result of this collaboration. Today, The Grand has exceeded its hiring commitment by employing

a team that consists of 40% local residents and 10% who are classified as at-risk. We are proud to support those in the LA community who experience some of the highest barriers to employment, and to help fulfill PVJOBS' goals of increasing employment rates among those who are most at-risk.
