The purpose of YouthBuild USA is to unleash the positive energy of low-income young adults to rebuild their communities and their lives, breaking the cycle of poverty with a commitment to work, education, community, and family.
YouthBuild USA incorporated in 1990 to replicate and scale the YouthBuild program with quality after it had succeeded in five NYC neighborhoods. There are now 264 programs in 46 states, Washington DC, and the Virgin Islands. Since 1994, over 120,000 YouthBuild students have built over 22,000 units of affordable, increasingly green, housing. In 2013, YouthBuild International engaged 12,000 young adults in 16 countries.
