Brian Boyle is a Career Specialist at the Chamber, supporting Work-Based Learning initiatives between the Health Care industry sector and public high schools in underserved communities in Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).
Boyle has been an educator for over 14 years, mostly in LAUSD in various capacities. His interest in education and helping underserved communities started as a volunteer English as a Second Language (ESL) Teacher for a Day Laborer Community Job Center sponsored by the Instituto de Educacion Poular del Sur de California (IDEPSCA) in Los Angeles. He continued working with undocumented ESL students for Los Angeles Community Adult School, where he coordinated a federal grant funded English Literacy Civics program, helping adult ESL students learn English via identifying and accessing community resources. Staying in the Wilshire Corridor and Pico Union communities, Boyle then became a Career Counselor at West Adams Preparatory High School where he opened and developed its first Career Center. It was during this time that Boyle realized his affinity for working with high school students and brokering professional and community relationships for high schools. He continued on to South Los Angeles, where he developed Jefferson High School’s Career Center and served as their Career Counselor. In his spare time, he continues to provide career advisement and mentoring to South Los Angeles youth. Prior to his experience in education, his primary interest was feature filmmaking where he worked for DreamWorks Studios and several other independent production companies.
Boyle earned a B.A. in Film Production from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and an M.S. in Educational Psychology from USC’s Rossier School of Education.
