YouthBuild is a comprehensive youth and community development program. YouthBuild simultaneously addresses several core issues facing low-income communities: education, housing, jobs, and leadership development. It uniquely addresses the status of unemployed young men and women who have dropped out of school and have no apparent path to a productive future. It allows them to simultaneously serve their communities and build their own future.
