Since 2002, KCCD/FACE has trained a range of disadvantaged and underserved adults and youth from various programs such as the Transitional Subsidized Employment (TSE) Job Training program from the City of Los Angeles in collaboration with the Worksource Centers, Americorps VISTA, the Summer Youth Program, Computer classes, and by also providing internships to students from partner universities and schools. These programs equip adults and youth with critical administrative and leadership skills, as well as experience with life skills, self-image, reporting, soft skills, presentation skills, administrative office skills, government & public relations, organizing press conferences, writing press releases, public policy research and advocacy, contacting media, marketing and social media updates, videotaping, accounting, creating budgets for programs, event programming, fundraising, partnership development, and navigating resources.

In addition, as part of KCCD/FACE’s commitment to the job training program, participants are provided with off-site training opportunities such as grant writing and media relations training as well as opportunities to attend special events and meet elected officials, media, and key leaders - both at local and national levels. KCCD/FACE has trained a few hundred participants who have shared many successful testimonies and who have been placed into permanent jobs. KCCD/FACE is partnered with 4 Worksource Centers and the California Public Utilities Commission to provide job placement and enhancing computer literacy skills.
Most recently, KCCD/FACE has launched its API JOBS Initative to assist linguistically isolated participants in finding job, training, and business opportunities by connecting with the City of Los Angeles Worksource Centers.
