Kern YouthBuild Program
Kern YouthBuild is an alternative education program funded by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) which serves young people ages 17-22 who are high school drop-outs, adjudicated youth, youth aging out of foster care or other at-risk youth.
Kern YouthBuild is a program that emphasizes completing a High School Diploma while obtaining construction based skill sets. This also includes one year of continued employment and education advisory between the participant and Kern YouthBuild after program completion.
The main goal of Kern YouthBuild is for the participant to earn their High School Diploma. This includes comprehensive guidance to further education, counseling services, and leadership skills. Additionally, the YouthBuild training model provides participants with training in the construction field through the new construction or rehabilitation of homes for low-income families. This occupational skills training provides youth with meaningful work and service to their communities while furthering their education.
At this time, program entry has been closed. Please check back in spring of 2016 for new application dates.
