About this grant
This grant will provide support to YouthBuild USA to continue to align education and sector-based strategies to provide students in its network access to advanced opportunities in high demand occupations. Through this project, the grantee has worked with affiliate programs in developing focused articulation agreements with community colleges, certification training pathways, and placement and apprenticeship opportunities for students in the construction and healthcare industries. Over the past year, students enrolled in this focused career development effort have successfully moved into entry-level employment and/or further postsecondary opportunities. Recommended support will enable the grantee to deepen and expand its education and sector-based activities to additional affiliate programs across the United States.
