The Urban League of Greater Atlanta Youth Build (ULGA YouthBuild) Program symbolizes the organization’s historic commitment to elevating traditionally underserved individuals and communities through economic empowerment. As a first time recipient of the U.S. Department of Labor YouthBuild Grant, the Urban League of Greater Atlanta is excited to offer the Youth Build program to individuals residing in Fulton County Georgia.
The ULGA YouthBuild program will serve a total of thirty-two (32) young adults between the ages of 16 and 24. All accepted applicants must complete a two week Mental Toughness Boot Camp. If an applicant successfully completes Boot Camp, he/she will officially be enrolled in the YouthBuild for a program cycle of ten (10) months. Each participant will have the opportunity to earn a high school diploma or GED; obtain an industry recognized Construction Worker Certificate; and receive employment placement assistance.
Additionally, ULGA YouthBuild participants will build and/or renovate one housing unit per program cycle and gain valuable leadership development, mentoring and life skills.
