Meet Angel Montenegro
Mar Vista Gardens resident Angel Montenegro, 20, a recent high school graduate and low-income youth living in public housing with limited employment history, attended a Community Open House hosted by SBWIB in partnership with the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA).
In coordination with his career counselor, Angel was sponsored into the Local 300 Labor Union and
dispatched to SoFi Stadium as a landscaper within days of his program enrollment. His daily duties at SoFi Stadium included maintaining Inglewood’s most prominent project and its meticulous landscaping in preparation for the highly anticipated Super Bowl LVI.
Outcome and Benefits:
Angel remains employed as a Local 300 Level I apprentice with steady wage increases since his hire date.
“One Stop staff was always very professional and ready to help me. In a very short time I was able to get this job and get my construction career started. I appreciate all the assistance and support received from the One-Stop team.”
