Funding targets city youth training program

The Housing Authority of Baltimore City will receive a federal grant of $1,050,160 for its YouthBuild Program from the U.S Department of Labor.

The YouthBuild program is a workforce and community development program that serves youth ages 16-24.

The target population for YouthBuild is high school dropouts, who may be youth aging out of foster care, youth with disabilities, adjudicated youth or other at-risk youth.

YouthBuild mixes academic instruction and job training leading to the completion of a high school diploma or GED.

Announcement of the DOL grant was made by U.S. Sens. Barbara A. Mikulski and Ben Cardin, both D-Md.
