REBUILDING LIVES AND COMMUNITIES
There are at least 2.3 million unemployed, low-income 16-24 year-olds in the United States who are not in school or vocational training of any kind.
Globally, over 200 million youth are working poor and earning less than $2.00 a day. All are in urgent need of pathways to education, jobs, entrepreneurship, and other opportunities leading to productive livelihoods and community leadership.
YouthBuild programs provide those pathways. All over the world, YouthBuild unleashes the positive energy of low-income young people to rebuild their communities and their lives, breaking the cycle of poverty with a commitment to work, education, family, and community.
