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 the JCPS schedule. Students will return to daily activities on campus once JCPS resumes their normal schedule or when it is deemed safe to do so. Current YBL students are working with their teachers and case managers daily online.

Happy Fall from YouthBuild Louisville! We just got back from a brisk and beautiful morning cleaning up Cox Park. We even got to skip stones by the river at the end! youthbuildlouky photo
