By hiring a YouthBuild graduate you gain a terrific employee while serving as a conscientious corporate citizen by giving a career opportunity to a young person who overcame barriers. When young people have access to meaningful and rewarding work, they help themselves and their families climb the economic ladder, improving health and education outcomes for future generations.
YouthBuild trains and prepares approximately 30 young people each year for apprenticeships, entry-level jobs, and growth potential careers. Our graduates gain the experience necessary for construction and other fields.
