YouthBuild Leadership Development & Alumni VISTA- Denver, CO
Mile High Youth Corps’ YouthBuild Program is a comprehensive job-training, education and leadership development program that engages out-of-school and unemployed young adults ages 17-24. Throughout the term, YouthBuild participants spend half of their time either on a large-scale construction site learning construction skills and building low-income housing units, or receiving nurse aide training while serving in a healthcare related position with a local nonprofit or health center. The remaining time is spent in the classroom working toward earning their high school equivalency. YouthBuild participants receive career and college readiness training, leadership development, service learning and civic engagement activities, life skills and healthy lifestyles classes. In addition, they receive intensive career and post-secondary education placement assistance after finishing their term, as well as one year of intensive follow-up services. Participants have the opportunity to earn an AmeriCorps Education Award toward their continuing education.
