Bull City YouthBuild

Information provided by: Durham System of Care

Bull City YouthBuild is a full-time, 9-month program that helps you earn your high school equivalency/diploma while giving you hands-on job skills training in the construction industry. Through the YouthBuild program, our participants will work in the classroom to earn their high school equivalency/diploma while constructing low-income housing through our partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Durham. Participants will have the opportunity to develop leadership skills, build lasting friendships, access career counseling and job or education placement, and earn a construction certificate that will make them highly employable. Bull City YouthBuild participants can earn up to $200/month while attending the program, and all Bull City YouthBuild graduates will receive a laptop upon completion of the program. More importantly, YouthBuild offers hope and a second chance to overcome obstacles that many of our participants have faced, including poverty, violence, abuse, drugs, fear, and lack of support. Participants will get support from expert staff to help them succeed in the classroom, at the worksite, and in life.
