YouthBuild Philadelphia functions as a hardworking team in a friendly, family environment. The organization’s mission is to provide out-of-school youth with the broadest range of tools, supports, and opportunities to become self-sufficient, responsible, contributing members and leaders in their community. We are more than a school; our services span a two-year period during which students first earn a high school diploma and a trade certification, then transition into higher education and/or employment. Our employees share a commitment to our mission and are dedicated to ensuring high standards in education, support and community development.
YouthBuild has been a Philly.com Top Workplace for seven consecutive years. Here’s what our employees have enjoyed about working at YouthBuild:
“All of our work is student-centered, and not just because we want it to be. We purposefully and intentionally place all of our energy into the student experience.”
“The respect and genuine love the staff has for each other.”
“The ability to be creative.”
