The YouthBuild program provides construction training, GED classes and job preparation and placement for high school dropouts ages 18-24.
Participants receive stipends while they attend GED classes and complete a 200-hour Construction Essentials certificate course at Monroe Community College, and gain hands-on experience building homes with Habitat for Humanity. YouthBuild also provides participants with leadership development training and job placement assistance.
YouthBuild is a collaboration between the Urban League of Rochester, Monroe Community College, the Rochester City School District, and Flower City Habitat for Humanity.
