Four YouthBuild students pass the Carpenters Union test

After months of preparation, four YouthBuild students pass the Carpenters Union test!

Daven, Isaiah, Anthony, and Nicole all were a part of a select group of YouthBuild students who were enrolled in a carpentry math class that met twice a month on Saturday’s to prepare for the test. Isaiah and Nicole were part of the Greenbuild track, Daven was in the Building & Deconstruction track, and Anthony Advanced Construction. Each of these amazing young people already have between 3 and 5 opportunities to consider once they graduate.

When asked what this accomplishment means to them and what they learned from this accomplishment, they each had this to say:
