Learn and earn. That’s the basic truth behind RichmondBUILD’s YouthBUILD program that provides free training for youth in construction careers.
YouthBUILD, which assists low-income young people ages 16–24 in transforming their lives, is currently accepting applicants for its Aug. 3 cohort.
Program participants can work toward their GEDs or high school diplomas, learn job skills, and work on community projects. The deadline to enroll in the program in July 24.
The program provides participants with intensive hands-on training in industry-recognized certifications and supports their progress toward a lucrative career in the construction industry, assisting not only with their education but also union initiation dues and transportation.
