Alumni Services

We believe in the leadership potential of all YouthBuild students and alumni. YouthBuild USA provides national opportunities for our graduates to participate in leadership roles and in their local communities. They are also called upon to provide input into YouthBuild program quality and policies, and contribute to national forums related to the issues of low-income youth and communities.

YouthBuild USA recognizes that graduates have ongoing financial needs for college and launching their careers: e.g. buying tools for their first union job or acquiring a car to get to their first job in a rural area. Sometimes they also face unexpected health or other family crises.

Financial Opportunities

YouthBuild USA is committed to assisting alumni in all capacities of their lives.  This includes opportunities for financial assistance related to career and professional development, education, and economic hardship. YouthBuild offers two types of assistance:

The YouthBuild USA Asset Trust

The Asset Trust grant will be awarded based on need to YouthBuild alumni who are experiencing hardship; wish to further their entrepreneurial, professional or leadership endeavors; pursue personal milestones such as a home or vehicle purchase; or have an education focused opportunity. Applicants should fill out the application and submit to the YouthBuild USA Alumni Services Department. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis with funds distributed quarterly.

Helene D. Stoneman Scholarship

The Helene D. Stoneman Scholarship is awarded to YouthBuild Graduates who are leaders in their communities and working towards post-secondary success.
