A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held in Hollywood on May 28 to celebrate the historic partnership between Xerox and the YWCA Greater Los Angeles. The event opened the doors to Xerox’s Digital Learning Academy (DLA) at Hollywood’s Studio Club at 1215 Lodi Place.

The innovative high-tech training program by the Xerox Customer Business Development team addresses two of the United States’ most pressing needs: providing qualified workers for new industry technologies and offering disadvantaged young people paths to lifelong success.
The DLA is the brainchild of YWCA GLA president and CEO Faye Washington, who is pictured with Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, 13th District, and Ian O’Donnell, Xerox’s senior vice president of Global Sales, High Tech, Communications and Media. Students ages 16-24 can receive training for high-tech jobs essential to industrial growth.
The program is an extension of YWCA GLA’s efforts to educate, house, feed and address the health and medical needs of disadvantage young people, as well train them to enter the workforce. Visit www.ywcagla.org.
