The ACE YB Career Academy is an opportunity to ready yourself for employment and earn while you learn.
Here, you will work towards your high school diploma while also gaining work experience, participating in pre-apprenticeship construction training, building affordable housing in your community, earning stackable credentials to add to your resume, developing a personalized career plan, all the while earning over $3,000 for your participation in the program.
Upon completion of the program (usually 6-12 months), we will assist you in finding a job and then continue to support you for at least a year to make sure you keep that job.
Want to go to college after you earn your diploma? Join a trade union? The military?
We can assist with all of that too, and we commit to supporting you for at least a year after the program ends to ensure your transition to life after the Academy is smooth. Though that strong follow-up is for a year, once in YouthBuild, always in YouthBuild.
