Community Outreach - #HOPE - Helping Other People Everyday
LASCC HOPE Tour is our community outreach to connect resources, products, and services to South L.A. residents, small businesses, and entrepreneurs, in order to foster better relationships, and help residents along with small businesses become self reliant, sustainable, and to thrive. .
The LASCC advocates for Small Businesses, and serves as a platform to build business relationships. Many businesses in South L.A. are not connected to their local
government representatives, neighboring businesses, or the community they serve.
Fostering new relationships creates unlimited opportunities to grow a business.
Also, some professionals are frustrated with their economic status, and many are
experiencing on the job dissatisfaction.
Therefore, our HOPE (Helping other People Everyday) programs offers support to community residents, local businesses, and aspiring entrepreneurs seeking to start their own business.
Our Chamber Ambassadors are Volunteers/Apprenticeships (i.e. Students, Retirees,
and Community Residents) selected by the LASCC Board of Directors to support HOPE community initiatives, membership campaigns, and act as public relations liaisons.
Small Business is the backbone of our local economy, and we admire those with the
courage to live their dream through business ownership.
Thank you for connecting with us!
