About Us

The Century Center for Economic Opportunity (CCEO) YouthBuild is a non-profit charter high school/youth development program that serves disadvantaged youth between the ages of 16-24 in the Lennox/Inglewood area. Leadership and social justice are central to our mission and we provide youth the opportunity to earn a high school diploma, training and certification in the construction field and computer technology field and leadership/ life skills development in order to transform the young people into agents of change. Our youth experience an array of hardships including drug addiction, homelessness, anger issues, prior incarceration, gang affiliation, etc. They have made the decision to make a positive change in their lives and communities through our program.

To assist our YouthBuild population, we are always recruiting committed volunteers to serve as mentors, education tutors, office administrative helpers, career pathway coaches and general volunteers to assist with our breakfast and lunch program and garden (fruits, vegetables and drought tolerant plants).  If you are interested, please feel free to contact Andy Delgado at 310.225.3060 ext 200 or at andy@centurycenter.com .  Check out our website at cceoyouthbuild.org. Thank you!
