Flanked by the severed heads and drooling monsters he created for movies such as "Aliens" and "Slumber Party Massacre," Rick Lazzarini seems an unlikely pioneer for the health sciences.

For the first time in 20 years, a federally funded Job Corps center has opened its doors in California. The new $21-million facility, on former Navy land in Long Beach, is training nearly 200 at-risk youths who might never have an opportunity for a career. Some have had brushes with the law.
