About this grant

This grant will support capacity building and sustainability activities during the executive transition currently under way at YouthBuild USA. The transition has created additional expenses to the organization, including executive coaching, enhanced travel, and staff professional development. Funding will help support these activities as well as special fundraising activities planned in conjunction with the retirement of YouthBuild’s founder. Headquartered in Boston, YouthBuild USA was founded in 1988 to unleash the intelligence and positive energy of low-income young people to rebuild their communities and their lives.
