YouthBuild Philadelphia functions as a hardworking team in a friendly, family environment. The organization’s mission is to provide out-of-school youth with the broadest range of tools, supports, and opportunities to become self-sufficient, responsible, contributing members and leaders in their community. We are more than a school; our services span a two-year period during which students first earn a high school diploma and a trade certification, then transition into higher education and/or employment. Our employees share a commitment to our mission and are dedicated to ensuring high standards in education, support and community development.

Here’s what our employees have enjoyed about working at YouthBuild:

  • “All of our work is student-centered, and not just because we want it to be. We purposefully and intentionally place all of our energy into the student experience.”
  • “The respect and genuine love the staff has for each other.”
  • “The ability to be creative.”
