YouthBuild: Constructing a Brighter Future for Low-Income Teens

Giving underprivileged girls and boys a chance for a brighter future is the goal behind one of the most successful construction programs in the United States today.

What started as a glimmer of hope for kids in East Harlem in 1978, is now one of New York City’s most impressive youth training programs of all time. Designed to provide young women and young men with a set of construction skills to transform their lives from poverty to triumph, YouthBuild offers more than just hands-on training. It encompasses an entire educational program to transform young lives.

Funded through private donations and grants from the US Department of Labor (DOL), YouthBuild provides construction opportunities for teens who otherwise wouldn’t have a chance to develop marketable skills.

Builder Chicks supports YouthBuild 100-percent. We’ll be bringing you announcements of future events that you can take part in and covering the success stories of YouthBuild construction projects around the nation.
