YouthBuild is a youth and community development program that addresses core issues facing low-income communities: housing, education, employment, crime prevention, and leadership development.
In YouthBuild, young people ages 16-24 work toward their GED, high school diploma or college credits, learn job skills and serve their communities by building affordable housing, and transform their own lives and roles in society.
- YouthBuild requires a minimum 9 month daily commitment,
Monday-Friday, 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Young people will be recruited from
Madras, Prineville, Sisters, and Redmond. Our main campus is located in
Cloverdale, between Sisters and Redmond. YouthBuild staff will provide
transportation to Cloverdale from the Redmond Public Library (public
transportation is available to this pick-up site).
- YouthBuild has an alternating schedule: two weeks in the classroom (working on GED/high school completion, leadership skills, vocational training, etc.) and two weeks in the construction field building, repairing, renovating homes and learning apprenticeship skills.
- Youth earn a small stipend during the program for work in the
classroom and on the construction site, this stipend increases with
positive work ethic, attendance, and clean UA's (urinary analysis).
- The application process has many steps. All potential applicants first attend a scheduled information session. Applicants whose applications are selected will then attend a day of orientation, testing, and interviews. Then, a smaller pool is selected to go through Mental Toughness Orientation.
