From 2015 to 2016, YouthBuild programs in Los Angeles County placed 100 individuals in apprenticeships. This coordinated effort included placements for 47 YouthBuild graduates and 53 residents who lived in low-income communities.

YouthBuild sponsoring organizations added value to these partnerships by helping apprenticeship sponsors meet local hiring targets during the limited lifespan of construction projects. This created career opportunities for YouthBuild graduates. Rossie Cherry, CEO of Advancing Communities Together, was integral to the success of these efforts.

Please join Rossie online on Friday, June 1 at 11:30am (ET)/ 10:30am (CT)/9:30am (MT)/8:30am (PT) where he’ll field your questions and comments. Register for this online chat now!
