YouthBuild is designed to provide low-income, out-of-school youth, aged 16-24 with an opportunity to transform their lives and become contributing partners in the community. Participants receive on-the-job, hands-on, construction skills training utilizing an actual housing rehabilitation project or new construction site in the community that helps to create quality low-income housing. Additionally, participants receive Home Building Institute (HBI) Pre-Apprenticeship Certification Training (PACT) and OSHA certification training. Participants also receive High School Equivalency Test (HiSET™) preparation; leadership skills development – including community service projects; counseling and support services; life, financial literacy and job readiness training, as well as assistance with job placement and transition to higher education opportunities.
In addition to the Construction/ Building Trades track outlined above, TRA-Worcester YouthBuild offers a Nurse Assistant/ Home Health Aide Training track where young people earn their state certifications through a partnership with the American Red Cross.
