The C.O.R.E. Internship Program is an initiative of the Los Angeles County's [email protected] program, in partnership with the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. The program is aimed at providing paid career exploration and on-the-job work experience in the private sector to young adults, ages 18-24, with a history of criminal justice involvement. C.O.R.E. offers justice-involved young adults two-months of paid work experience, valuable employment skills, a support network and lived-experience mentors to help them advance in a career pathway. The America's Job Center of California will be the employer of record and will assume the role and responsibility of the primary employer. 

C.O.R.E provides supplemental education activities for both young adult and employer participants. Activities that will enhance a young person's experience includes career exploration to develop career awareness, understanding of personal money management, and work-related social skills. Businesses that participate in C.O.R.E as an employer are exposed to leveraging fair chance hiring and the California Fair Chance Act, passed in 2018, as a strategy to increase their bottom line. 

Hiring justice-involved individuals and workers with records enables a company to connect with a previously untapped talent pool of a highly motivated, loyal, resilient, hardworking and innovative workforce that brings unique skills to the workplace and increase a company's Corporate Social Responsibility, as well as Diversity and Inclusion profile.
