A network of success
Denver YouthBuild is part of an international network of YouthBuild programs. In 2014, 260 YouthBuild programs in the United States engaged nearly 10,000 low-income young adults who left high school without a diploma. Funded by the Department of Labor, YouthBuild USA has achieved remarkable results. (Source: YouthBuild USA)
