Building Community, Building Lives


Why do so many students who don�t survive in a traditional school environment thrive academically at PYB?

Green Construction

For young people who love to work with their hands, construction training at Portland YouthBuilders is a dream come true.


Technology plays a central role in our lives at work, at home, and on the go. This is why our technology program not only teaches relevant software and technology skills, but also provides students with a foundation in IT-related customer service skills.

Personal Development

Even though they�re highly motivated to make a change, there�s no getting around the fact that Portland YouthBuilders students come to us with a number of significant barriers that are getting in the way of their success.

Career Development

Our career development classes go beyond teaching basic resume writing skills. We teach young people how, and why, to develop a strong work ethic.

Long Term Support

One key thing that sets Portland YouthBuilders apart is our commitment to serving students over the long haul, even after they�ve left our full-time program.

Leadership & Service

PYB students know that leadership can be as simple as helping to clean up someone else�s mess or as impactful as becoming the first person in your family to go to college.


In our part of the country, taking care of the environment is second nature. But when you�re a young person dealing with challenges that make it difficult to survive day-to-day, caring for the world around you often takes a back seat to personal survival.
