NY: YouthBuild aims to construct strong students
Rochester Business Journal – October 12, 2017
The mission of YouthBuild USA and YouthBuild International is to “unleash the intelligence and positive energy of low-income young people to rebuild their communities and live their lives.” The program targets disadvantaged youth aged 18 to 24, three-quarters of whom have left high school. Participants must meet one of the following criteria: be a member of a low-income family; in foster care; adjudicated; an individual with a disability; a child of an incarcerated parent; homeless; or a migrant.
