Youth Building Alternatives has been serving young men and women since 1994. 

YouthBuild is a comprehensive youth development program with the following core components:

  • Education
  • Vocational
  • Jobs for Maine Graduates
  • Leadership
  • Community Service
  • On-site counseling (group and individual) 

Our focus is to engage out-of-school, low-income youth ages 16.5-24 and help them obtain valued skills and certifications including PACT, NCCER, OSHA-10 and GED. Through alternative education and employment pathways, we will enable participants to advance toward post-secondary education or career-oriented employment while taking responsibility for the community at large. 

Upon successful completion of the program YouthBuild transition services assist students in job and/or college placement. Our wonderful and dedicated staff will continue to provide follow-up services for at least a year after leaving the program.
