Youth-Build programs across the country operate as charter schools,
 alternative schools, or GED programs and serve low-income young
 people ages 16-24, who have left high school without a diploma. Along 
with an international presence in 15 countries, 273 domestic Youth-
Build programs currently serve 10,000 students.

As a national intermediary, Youth-Build USA supports regular learning
 exchange conferences among educators across the Youth-Build network. 
Youth-Build programs participating in two national education initiatives
 funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation also receive proactive
 instructional coaching, direct technical assistance and substantial peer
 learning opportunities to improve teaching and learning efforts.

Youth-Build USA and local Youth-Build programs organize and participate
 in national and state coalitions in support of resources and public policies 
that support Youth-Build students’ success and facilitate effective youth and 
community development beyond Youth-Build. This work is coordinated with 
other similar networks of schools and community based organizations 
collaborating toward maximum learning and impact.

Ultimately, the Youth-Build movement attracts, inspires, develops and organizes new young leaders and adult social entrepreneurs within low-income communities across the country. Collectively, these leaders and entrepreneurs spread the philosophy and methodology of youth leadership development as a central part of working with youth in all contexts, including education, job training, national service, crime prevention and counseling.
