|YouthBuild is a uniquely comprehensive, full-time, non-residential, community-based program that offers at-risk youth an immediately productive role rebuilding their communities.
Students spend half their time attending basic education classes and half their time receiving job skills training in high-demand fields while building affordable housing. YouthBuild is also on the cutting edge of education reform for drop-outs and effective re-entry for offenders.
YouthBuild programs work because they put equal emphasis on education, employment skills, and community service in a supportive setting. While attending basic education classes for 50% of program time for approximately 10 months, students also receive job skills training, personal counseling from respected mentors, a supportive peer group with positive values, help in building assets through IDA programs, and experience in civic engagement. The young people help address the need for affordable housing by building houses for low to moderate income people while earning their GED.
All students receive a national or local credential while in the program in addition to the opportunity to attain a GED. At Pathways we offer training for the following certifications: basic construction, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, green building, lead safety and food services management.|
