YouTube video: J-Report on LA ORT: Part 2

The second part of J-Reports’ ORT video talks about some history of Los Angeles ORT, and its’ current focuses as well as the types of programs you can find at the school today.

ORT came to Los Angeles in 1985, and though it started out as a school whose primary purpose was to provide language training, its’ curriculum now encompasses a variety of studies. Students are able to get degrees in accounting or medical office management, or diplomas to become pharmacy technicians or work on computer graphics, and those are only a few of the amazing programs we offer!

One of our goals is to find occupations that are in high demand and to get people trained efficiently and quickly so that they can join the workforce. We want to give people the best skills training possible in order to help them find employment sooner rather than later!

Even though the school started out as a mainly Jewish dominated student body, we are now a diverse campus, welcoming anybody and everybody. In order to retain our association with our Jewish roots we do require cultural and Jewish studies in our programs.  We feel that this speaks for the quality of programs offered as well as helps play a preventative role in anti-semitism.  Be sure to check out parts 1 and 2 of the video and let us know what you think, and check out our website for a full list of diplomas and degrees offered.

LA ORT is a group of nonprofit junior colleges in Los Angeles and Van Nuys provide career training in short term courses.
