About this grant

This grant will support a continuing leadership transition and organizational transformation effort by helping YouthBuild USA move its headquarters from Somerville, Massachusetts, to the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston. The grantee believes the move will lead to several positive outcomes, including increased ability to attract and retain talent, opportunities for greater collaboration with mission-related organizations and deeper staff connections to a large population of program participants. The grantee was established in 1990 in East Harlem, New York, to provide education, counseling and job training opportunities to unemployed, disconnected youth. Today, YouthBuild USA has expanded to more than 250 sites in 48 states, plus more than 20 countries internationally.
