KRA Adopts Beach Streets Midtown Intersection

The website states, There are several key ways the City hopes to use ‘Beach Streets’ as an invitation to think differently about our streets.” And, attended by such dignitaries as Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia and City Councilmember Daryl Supernaw, Beach Streets Midtown was another spectacular success!

In the spirit of the 2016 Community Care Campaign (CCC), the KRA Knowledge2Career (K2C) Academy, operated for the Pacific Gateway WDB, joined Beach Streets Midtown by adopting a midtown/central Long Beach intersection and shining a light on the needs of hard-to-place youth for skills-training and -certification and jobs with “second-chance employers”.

Long Beach - Beach Streets - 400x189KRA staff, enrolled K2C participants, and community-partner volunteers helped Long Beach Police and Transit Department officials facilitate safety for thousands of attendees, while sharing information and materials related to the valuable workforce services available to local business owners and older-youth jobseekers.

KRA/K2C’s participation was well received by both current and potential community partners, including employers expressing interest in helping young adults, struggling with PTSD and/or re-entry challenges, to gain meaningful training and self-sustaining employment.
