Housing Authority Offering Construction Training for Youth

Dec. 3, 2007 – The Virgin Islands Housing Authority's Department of Public Relations and Resident Services is currently accepting applications for the 2007 YouthBuild U.S. Virgin Islands Program on St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix.
YouthBuild is a multi-strategy youth and community development program that offers an opportunity for the unemployed, out of school or unskilled young adults, ages 16-24, to earn their GED, acquire job skills and learn construction trades through classroom and on-site construction training. Leadership skills development, adult mentorship, counseling, and support services to assist with personal challenges and assistance with job placement at the end of the training are also components of the program.
Residents of public housing and participants in the Housing Choice Voucher Program, formerly Section 8, can obtain registration forms from the YouthBuild Office in Oswald Harris Court, all area managers offices or the VIHA central office in St. Thomas and St. Croix Districts.
For more information, contact Carla Joseph, program manager, at 714-2102 or 715-7331.
