Santa Monica Community Youth Program

Community Service Block Grant youth program provides career-planning services and assistance with job placement to low-income youth ages 16 to 24 years old.

The program assists young adults in transitioning from the school to the workplace with comprehensive career guidance and education with the goal of turning these students away from the path of gangs, drugs, and violence and toward a more productive future.


The program is open to qualifying Los Angeles County residents.
