YouthBuild Boston’s Construction Training Program offers vocational and academic training for young people, ages 18-24. Trainees learn valuable skills for beginning successful careers in the building trades. The curriculum addresses all aspects of general construction, including green and other emerging technologies that prepare our trainees for a competitive job market.
Students learn the value of their hard work, and the role they can play in strengthening their communities. On the construction sites, students build affordable housing for home assistance programs and low-income, first-time homeowners. These homes employ various green technologies, including energy efficient design, sustainably produced materials, alternative energy sources, and more. Special projects also benefit local nonprofits and community agencies. At YouthBuild Boston, young people play an active role in helping the community and the environment.
