Project Joy

Our mission is to spread J.O.Y. (Jobs & Opportunities for Youth) as a work-based learning center. Our goal is to empower, educate and encourage the most vulnerable youth ages 16-24. We have a vision to break the cycle of generational poverty and end systemic inequities through the power of opportunity.

    Youth Artificial Intelligence Program

    We are bridging the skills gap to new collar technology careers for opportunity youth in LA County. Using interactive play-based learning projects, youth build their digital and artificial intelligence literacy, discover emerging careers and become certified in the top ten 21st Century soft skills. Youth develop an AI Pitch for their community as a final project. This is where a community improvement idea is showcased, including the potential uses of artificial intelligence. This information sharing increases the community's awareness of AI.
