Students to Complete Energy-Star Certified Home

YouthBuild Philadelphia’s first signature green rehabilitation project is almost ready for a new first-time homebuyer! The project on Uber Street in the Nicetown section of Philadelphia is in partnership with Nicetown Community Development Corporation.

The rebuilding commenced in 2009 during a special demolition event with community volunteers and YouthBuild’s Class of 2010 led the energy-efficient and “green” rehabilitation project. Current YouthBuild students in the Green Building and Advanced Construction squads finished the home to Energy-Star Certification.

Nicetown CDC and YouthBuild will celebrate the completion of the home with a ribbon cutting ceremony in April. Please keep an eye out for an invitation in coming weeks!
