Grantees will operate a YouthBuild program, which provides education, occupational skills training, and employment services to youth between the ages of 16 and 24 who are high school dropouts, adjudicated youth, youth aging out of foster care, youth with disabilities, and other at-risk youth populations.

YouthBuild programs offer occupational skills training that prepare at-risk youth for career placement and in-school alternative education programs that assist youth who are often significantly behind in basic skills to obtain the goal of a high school diploma or GED credential.

Grantees will be expected to teach youth construction skills by building or significantly renovating homes for low-income or homeless families or individuals.


Eligible applicants for these grants are public or private non-profit agencies or organizations including rural, urban or Native American agencies.
