About YouthBuild USA

YouthBuild USA’s post-secondary education initiative supports low-income youth during the transition from second chance high school programs to and through college to productive employment. YouthBuild programs partner with colleges to support YouthBuild students, helping them apply, enroll, and complete two- and four-year degrees.
