What is YouthBuild?
Youthbuild is a program designed to help those without a high school degree obtain their GED all while learning useful skills that will benefit them their whole lives!
So much more than a simple GED program, Youthbuild utilizes the Mokingbird Education Method, which combines Adult Basic Education (Mathematics, Critical Thinking Skills, Technology & Literacy) alongside Workforce Preparation and Workforce Development.
As one of 276 YouthBuild programs operating in the United States, the mission of the program is to help transform the lives of young people through training, community service, and sustainable wage jobs.
