Young Detroit Builders
Young Detroit Builders is a YouthBuild USA-affiliated, non-profit organization that has been offering a comprehensive program of education, support services, counseling, leadership development, job and life skills preparation, on-the-job residential construction training and NCCER certification to young adults since 1996.
Our students are between the ages of 18 and 24, and participate in weekend service projects, as well as construction projects focused on rebuilding and repairing homes for low-income families in Detroit.
Students enrolled earn a modest living allowance while participating in our full-time, 10-month training program. Select students are invited to join as quarter-time AmeriCorps members and earn educational awards for college.
