YouthBuild Graduation

YouthBuild Graduation





Congratulations to our 9 YouthBuild graduates,Jordan, Joseph, Adnan, Jeffrey, Trevor, Tyler, Kevin, Tanner, and Dustin! Their June 26th Graduation was held at the Waterfront Park at Lake Champlain in Burlington. These students completed high school while gaining industry recognized skill certifications, completing community service projects, and working on-site to gain experience building, rehabbing, and weatherizing affordable housing.




ReSOURCE’s YouthBuild program serves 16 to 24 year old youth who have not completed their high school degree and need a comprehensive development and job training opportunity. ReSOURCE’s YouthBuild students learn the requirements for their high school diploma, obtain industry recognized certifications and skills, and upon their completion of the ten-month program will be placed in well-paying jobs, apprenticeships, or higher education.




Last year, 100% of YouthBuild graduates enrolled in post-secondary education, secured gainful employment, or both. We can't wait to see the amazing things this class accomplishes!


Big thanks to all the local businesses that donated goods for the graduation ceremony: American Flatbread, Wings Over Burlington, Hannafords, Price Chopper, Ben and Jerry's, City Market, Shaw's, and Union Jacks.
