YouthBuild’s New Look!

YouthBuild USA unveiled new global branding for the first time since its inception in 1978. This new visual identity was designed to reflect the breadth and depth of its work and unify its nearly 300 programs around the world.Β  YouthBuild Louisville is excited to be a part of the YouthBuild movement and to celebrate this rebranding locally.
