Pathway 2 Success Partners with YouthBuild

Pathway 2 Success is happy to have formed its newest partnership with YouthBuild.

From Seattle to South Africa, YouthBuild programs fill an urgent need.

Millions of young people around the world have energy, talent, and intelligence that are being wasted solely for lack of opportunity.

There are at least 2.3 million low-income 16-24 year-olds in the United States who are not in education, employment, or training.

Globally, over 200 million youth are working poor and earning less than $2.00 a day. All are in urgent need of pathways to education, jobs, entrepreneurship, and other opportunities leading to productive livelihoods and community leadership.

YouthBuild programs provide those pathways. All over the world they unleash the positive energy of low-income young people to rebuild their communities and their lives, breaking the cycle of poverty with a commitment to work, education, family, and community.

At YouthBuild programs in the United States and across the globe, low-income young people learn construction skills through building affordable housing for homeless and low-income people in their neighborhoods and other community assets such as community centers and schools.
