Description: The Green Initiative was launched in 2005 in order to bring green building practices into the YouthBuild USA network as our contribution to protecting the environment. It soon became clear that green skills training was extremely valuable for YouthBuild students. To help meet the increasing demand for green building jobs, the YouthBuild USA Green Initiative helps YouthBuild programs introduce green careers to YouthBuild students and helps them obtain industry-recognized credentials. Out-of-work and out-of-school young people who attend YouthBuild transform their lives while working towards their high school diplomas and learning sustainable construction (“green building”) skills.
