PACE YouthBuild is a Non-Traditional Route to Career Opportunities

(New Bedford, May 29, 2020) – PACE YouthBuild is excited to announce that we are currently accepting applications for our July 2020 class. YouthBuild has been serving out of school, 16-24-year-olds in Greater New Bedford, since 1995. YouthBuild offers a unique program, that combines classroom, hands-on and real-world training to help young people achieve employment success as adults.

The model fosters a supportive mini-community of youth and adults with explicitly positive values that encourage members to define and achieve their highest goals and aspirations.
The program has evolved from the first YouthBuild program in Harlem, to addressing the needs of the youth in our community today, while staying true to our roots. PACE YouthBuild is an excellent non-traditional route to career opportunities. The PACE YouthBuild Path to Employment Success, combines: Vocational Skill Advancement in Construction and our new CNA track; Employment Success Training; Leadership Development; HiSET Preparation; Financial Literacy Savings, 5-Week Paid Internship and Success Coaching throughout and for 1-yr post-graduation.

“Our main goal is to train young people, that were unable to follow the traditional educational path, to achieve employment success as adults! A video with more in-depth information about our programming and our 2:00 pm Thursday Q&A session and an on-line application are all available on our website at www.paceinfo.org. There are only 4 weeks left until our next class that will begin their programming virtually. This next group will share a unique virtual experience that will include YouthBuild programs statewide and from New York,” states YouthBuild New Bedford Director, Lisa Mello-Frost.

PACE YOUTH BUILD is currently located at 127 Rodney French Blvd, New Bedford, MA 02740. For more information call: 774-473-8439 or email at kathykruger@paceinfo.org
