YouthBuild Leaders on Leadership


YouthBuild Leaders on Leadership is the curated stories written by YouthBuild graduates originally published on The Huffington Post as part of the JobRaising Challenge.

In January, The Huffington Post, The Skoll Foundation, and McKinsey & Co. selected YouthBuild USA as a finalist for the JobRaising Challenge, a campaign to help non-profits raise awareness and support to put Americans back to work. For six weeks, stories written by YouthBuild graduates were featured on The Huffington Post’s YouthBuild USA profile that highlighted YouthBuild’s innovative career and leadership development approach.

With the support of the YouthBuild network, YouthBuild USA finished 12th out of the 74 competing organizations in the campaign. We applaud those who helped support connecting YouthBuild students to career pathways by publishing YouthBuild Leaders on Leadership.
