TAYportunity is a special employment program for Transition Age Youth (TAY), ages 18-24, who are looking for work! The purpose of TAYportunity is to help you explore new career opportunities in the areas of employment, apprenticeship training or entrepreneurship.

Employment – We have opportunities for you to earn money while learning and gaining meaningful work experience to level up your resume! These work experience opportunities have the potential to get you hired permanently in various County departments and private employers in the following fields:  

  • Clerical
  • Parks and Recreation
  • Construction
  • General Office
  • LAX Airport
  • Warehouse
  • Public Works
  • Retail
  • Many more!

Apprenticeships – Do you want to be an apprentice? We have training opportunities that will provide you with high skilled training in the areas of aerospace, bioscience, construction, and manufacturing. You will have a mentor to guide you through on-the-job learning to gain new skills and level up your work experience to help you secure full-time employment.

Entrepreneurship – We know a 9-5 is not for everyone and you may have your own business idea. You will be partnered up with our TAYportunity partners, StreetCraft CulturalXCreative, to participate in an in-person/virtual training program. The program is designed to help you explore potential business ideas/products and/or develop skills for in demand entrepreneurial pathways. You will learn how to market your creative endeavors, create your own business plan, and obtain the necessary licenses/certifications to run your own business. Level up and join the TAYportunity Program to harness your destined pathway!
