CSC YouthBuild is a comprehensive program designed to provide apprentice-like opportunities for young men and women ages 18 to 24 years old. Our diverse students bring with them varied experiences with school, family and community, but they all have one thing in common: They are ready to learn.
Learning takes place in both the classroom, where students earn their high school diplomas or GEDs, and in the field, where students gain construction skills and work experience by building, repairing or renovating houses for low-income families. We put a strong emphasis on career development to help students prepare for the transition from CSC YouthBuild to employment or post-secondary (college) education and/or vocational training.
CSC YouthBuild is a six-month to two-year youth development program. In addition to education and training, students practice leadership skills by serving as members of a Youth Advisory Committee and actively participate in their communities by performing volunteer activities in support of local nonprofit groups. Participants may receive monthly living stipends during the program, and may earn AmeriCorps education awards through their home-building and other community service.
