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
We are hope. Opportunity.
The answer to "Where do I go from here?" Where young people find the best in themselves and take their first step toward new, better lives.
We are YBLC... and we welcome you.
