Life After YouthBuild
The YouthBuild experience focuses on helping trainees improve their self-sufficiency and marketability by teaching important job skills, strengthening educational backgrounds, and instilling leadership values.
After successfully completing YouthBuild, some participants focus on finding a full-time job, others seek advanced vocational training, and still others apply to college. Whatever the next step may be, YouthBuild helps participants plan for their future.
YouthBuild provides a variety of information and counseling services to help trainees determine what type of job or educational opportunity they might want to pursue:
- We help trainees find job shadowing and on-the-job-training opportunities, where they work with area businesses to learn important job skills and gain work experience.
- We schedule off-site trips and bring in industry speakers to help provide insight into different types of careers.
- We provide information and advice on college and other educational and vocational training opportunities and financing options.
- We can provide job leads and employer recommendations (based on program performance).
