YouthBuild – What We Do

The GED Course

YouthBuild’s GED component is designed to provide participants with the necessary skills to successfully obtain their GED in the shortest possible amount of time, while ensuring that their academic skills are sufficient to join a post-secondary educational institution with confidence.

The Construction Course

The Construction course is designed to provide students with valuable skills in the world of building construction including safety and a focus on carpentry. These skills are acquired both in the classroom and at the construction site. Ultimately, YouthBuild trainees will earn nationally recognized credentials from The National Center for Construction Education and Research, NCCER.
