The YouthBuild program will provide education, training, and hands-on work experience to young people between the ages of 16 and 24 from targeted zip codes within Wake County. It is designed for those who need to obtain a high school diploma or GED, and are facing other life challenges that make it difficult to find and retain meaningful work.
The construction industry is growing and offers many different career paths as individuals gain skills and experience. YouthBuild consists of project-based academic learning and construction skills training in preparation for career placement. Participants will learn by building or significantly renovating homes for low-income families or transitional housing for homeless families or individuals. Improving their own lives as well as impacting the lives of others in their community produces a win-win.
