The 2010 YouthBuild Corpsmembers have just a couple of months left in their term with a graduation ceremony set for July 29th. Check out this video of current YouthBuild Corpsmember Shawnie Reid talking about how the program has helped him to better his life.
Mile High Youth Corps’ YouthBuild program employees 18-24 year olds looking to earn their GEDs and gain construction and leadership skills. The nine month program splits time between a classroom where Corpsmembers are given support and education to earn their GEDs and a construction site where they learn green construction skills and build low-income housing. They also work closely with Mile High Youth Corps’ staff members who assist them in resume writing, job searching and building other life skills.
Corpsmembers get paid an hourly wage and also receive an AmeriCorps education award upon completion of their term which they can use toward college, vocational school or other types of higher education and careers.
Are you or someone you know between the ages of 18 and 24 and interested in earning a GED and construction skills? YouthBuild might be right for you. Apply today!
