It is YouthBuild's mission to offer young people a once in a lifetime opportunity to build their futures and their communities through: education, leadership, development, job training, and the rehabilitation and production of affordable housing, while keeping a profound respect for, and a commitment to a real partnership with youth.

This is the Creed we live by... you should too.

I am YouthBuild. I proudly accept the challenge YouthBuild offers me to transform my life through education, leadership development, construction of affordable housing, and service to my community. I gladly receive the opportunity to develop my independence, work history, and personal integrity. I make this pledge now to myself and to the world. I am YouthBuild. I do make the difference.
