ABOUT THE OWNER


Mr. Lipscomb grew up in a rough and under privileged neighborhood in central Indianapolis, IN. "It's a tough way a life in my neighborhood and I wanted a way out" Mr. Lipscomb said, when asked what motivated him to start this organization. He didn't see any alternatives in Indianapolis, so he moved on to Illinois. He eventually moved back to Indianapolis to be closer to his family. However, this time when he came back he has something to offer that would help people better their lives. The organization appeals to Social Service agencies, Construction apprentice programs, Churches and community groups who are also in the fight to help people better their lives through meaningful employment. Love Life Outreach Vocational Training partnered with Gateway to employment, Healthy Indiana Plan and WorkOne to accomplish the mission.

HISTORY


Love Life Outreach Vocational Training (LLOVT) was carefully and holistically  developed by Antonio Lipscomb. Mr. Lipscomb is passionate about providing underprivileged society with an opportunity to be trained in the field of construction. Objectively students of  LLOVT will gain Certification through NCCER. (National Center for Construction Education and Research) potentially will lead to careered employment in the skill trades.

At the tender age of 16, Antonio left home and went to job corp. He enrolled in courses that focused on skilled labor.  Once he completed his courses he worked in the field for many years, after successfully working in the trade-skilled profession.  he noticed that a lot of young minority men were displaced both economically and demographically.

After several years researching statics regarding minority and underprivileged communities, he discovered very unsettling information. Black Minorities made up only 12% of construction skilled labor, Latino’s 38% of construction Labor, While 8.4% of Black Americans were unemployed and vast majority were uneducated and lacked employment that produced financial soundness.  This is how Love Life Outreach Vocational Training was conceived, nurtured and then birthed.
