AMG & Associates, Inc. Vice President/Secretary Tony Traverso attended the groundbreaking for one of the company’s recent projects, Communities in Schools’ (CIS) new Job Training & Opportunity Center, on December 5, 2011. Media organizations ABC7 Eyewitness News and the Los Angeles Daily News were on hand at the Pacoima site to capture the celebration.
In a Los Angeles Daily News interview, William “Blinky” Rodriguez, executive director and CEO of CIS’ San Fernando Valley and Greater Los Angeles operations, hailed the new center as a “beacon of hope in the Northeast Valley.” With a computer lab, classrooms, and a staff of eight case managers, the facility—slated to open in July 2012—will offer a youth leadership institute and programs ranging from life skills to counseling.
The hope is that the center will play a pivotal role in the region’s declining crime rates. Notes AMG President/CEO Albert Giacomazzi, “AMG has built a number of similar facilities for nonprofits across Los Angeles that have achieved their intended goals.”
CIS is a nationally recognized outreach program dedicated to redirecting misguided youth through education, training, and job placement.
