YouthBuild Austin is a holistic youth services program that combines academics with career training, leadership development, and community service. We offer young adults, ages 16 to 24, the opportunity to complete their education by earning a high school diploma or GED.
Students also receive paid career training and certification in computer technology, healthcare, or green construction. In addition, YouthBuild provides customized support services, including: counseling, basic needs assistance, graduate support, college readiness, and a re-entry track for young people exiting the criminal justice system. The mission of YouthBuild USA is to break the cycle of poverty by unleashing the intelligence and positive energy of low-income out-of-school young adults to rebuild their communities and their lives.
