YouthBuild Service Trip


Empowering youth to build their future through education, job skills training, and service

YouthBuild is a national program for 16-24 year old youth, providing an opportunity to earn trade certifications and an AmeriCorps Education Award, while learning construction skills.

Across the nation, young people are transforming their lives and rebuilding their communities. They are graduating from school, supporting their families, and restoring their neighborhoods.
ReSOURCE offers the only two YouthBuild programs in the state of Vermont. In addition to construction trade job skills, our focus on energy efficiency, including weatherization training, fully integrates the work of relieving poverty and protecting the environment with job skills training.
The ReSOURCE YouthBuild program will make a positive and lasting difference in the lives of our youth. Through our program design we empower youth to serve as active members of their community, helping those most in need while they pursue their futures.
ReSOURCE hosts the only YouthBuild programs in Vermont, but a nationwide network is linked together and supported by YouthBuild USA, a national nonprofit organization founded in 1990.
ReSOURCE YouthBuild is recognized as an AmeriCorps National Service Site. All students are co-enrolled as AmeriCorps members and are required to complete 675 hours of direct community service during their enrollment. In return, students receive a bi-weekly financial stipend, along with a $2,200 Segal Education Award upon completion.
Students complete their service hours through affordable housing construction, weatherization, and disaster response services, and through the weekly, student-led, direct service projects for community organizations and individuals in need.
The impact that our ReSOURCE YouthBuild students make on the community through these service projects hold tremendous weight for the program. In a given year, each YouthBuild crew will complete 20 community service projects working with different organizations and community spaces; such as Vermont Food Bank, Respite House, Shelburne Museum, Burlington and Barre Gardens, and Burlington Parks and Rec.

Community Service Trip

Years ago, ReSOURCE YouthBuild answered the call for service for rebuilding after both Hurricane Katrina and Tropical Storm Irene. We are incredibly proud of our current YouthBuild students for wanting to give back now to those affected by Hurricane Ian. Help them get there by supporting the campaign today.
