YouthBuild Louisville assists young people in meeting significant life goals, such as preparing for college and careers, by providing services in education, vocational training, community service, case management, placement, and post-graduation support.
Louisville Metro Government has supported the following programs:
- Spirit Beats was awarded $10k for Drumming Works to do four performances in the community. 20 youth will collaborate with the instructor to develop a marketing plan, art, musical instruments and skills, and to sell products made by building entrepreneurship.
UCC was awarded $37,500 for ten youth to obtain certification in DOL-certified Roots of Success, Citizen Forestry 101, and herbicide and pesticide application. 10 youth also participate in weekly service projects and field trips to study job opportunities.
Nursing was awarded $31,300 to support 41 lower-income youth, ages 18-24, in getting their GED. These funds also support youth obtaining nursing workforce certifications and being placed into employment or college at the end of their program.

Friday we took the students to Malibu Jacks to celebrate all their hard work. It was such a fun experience and we dominated laser tag and the ticket games.
