About the organization
YouthBuild champions today’s opportunity youth who aspire to improve their lives and communities by building the skills and resources to reach their full potential. Through hundreds of YouthBuild programs in the United States and around the globe, these young people pursue their education, prepare for future careers, and grow into community leaders – building brighter futures for themselves, and their neighborhoods.
With love and respect, YouthBuild partners with opportunity youth to build the skillsets and mindsets that lead to lifelong learning, livelihood, and leadership.

The VISTA will establish a YouthBuild Alumni network and identifying key Alumni in setting up an Alumni Leadership Committee.
