WATTS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Local activist "Sweet Alice" Harris is helping keep young people on the job and off the street with a unique training program. Wednesday was graduation day in Watts.
It's a class you'd expect to see in a community college setting. But the Advanced Fire Extinguisher Company's class is tucked away in a room behind the house of youth outreach group Parents of Watts. And while the campus may be less than traditional, the jobs being created are very traditional and much desired.
