We aim to increase the quality, impact, and sustainability of YouthBuild programs by:
With youth leaders at the forefront, our Advocacy team leads efforts advocating for government funding that invests in YouthBuild programs. We also advocate for policy and systemic changes that improve the lives of opportunity youth.
Our Alumni Services team creates spaces where alumni from across the country can connect with each other, and provides opportunities that will help them succeed both professionally and personally.
Since 1994, we have served as a national intermediary for YouthBuild AmeriCorps funds and education awards, bringing additional resources to YouthBuild USA Affiliate programs to expand their capacity and service within their community.
The YouthBuild VISTA program engages full-time volunteers in national service to increase the capacity of local YouthBuild programs. Since 1965, VISTA members have served with the mission to strengthen community-based organizations that alleviate poverty.
YouthBuild USA is the technical assistance provider for the U.S. Department of Labor’s YouthBuild program.
YouthBuild Mentoring boosts academic achievement, assists with career exploration, enhances leadership development, and strengthens connections between YouthBuild students, their own families, communities, and community partners.
SBIRT is a comprehensive public health approach to the delivery of early intervention and treatment services for persons with substance use disorders, as well as those who are “at risk” of developing these disorders.
