Our mission is to help low-income young adults complete their education, learn the necessary skills to become gainfully employed, and build a hopeful future for themselves and their families.
I was recently incarcerated. When I came home, I didn’t know which way to go. YouthBuild has opened up a lot of doors for me. There are a lot of opportunities, great role models and mentors here.They make a way for kids who never really had a way. — Tim, YBLC Student
