Portland Youth Builders
PYB provides educational, vocational, and leadership development programs for very low income youth. All of the young people we serve (ages 17-24) have dropped out of high school and come to us for a chance at creating a brighter, better future. Our programs support youth who are trying to make a positive change in their lives.
At PYB, our students work on completing their high school education while learning a trade that can help them enter a high-paying career in either construction or computer technology. Whether building houses for low-income families or creating websites for nonprofit organizations, all of our students learn the value and importance of hard work, caring for the community, and becoming positive leaders. Our goal is to move our students out of poverty and into self-sufficiency.
