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.


In response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), YouthBuild Louisville is operating on limited in-office staffing and students are on a virtual/ in- person hybrid schedule.   YBL students are working with their teachers and case managers daily online.

Our HAZCOM training is complete! HAZCOM certifications are needed in construction and health care industries, so we offer it to our students to build their resumes. Employers love to see that YBL students are already certified. Congrats to this year's students for this milestone! youthbuildlouky photo
