Leading the National Health Care Initiative
When we launched our Health Care Training program for the 2005-06 school year, we were one of the first of over 200 YouthBuild programs across the country to address the demand for career opportunities outside the construction field. Over the last three years, the program has become a huge success, allowing dozens of our students to earn Nurse Aide certification and provide hundreds of hours of nursing care.
We recently partnered with YouthBuild USA to publish a manual for YouthBuild programs wishing to launch or refine their health-care training and exploration tracks. The manual can be downloaded as a PDF at YouthBuild USA’s new health-care training resources page.
