Building Community, Building Lives
Why do so many students who don’t survive in a traditional school environment thrive academically at PYB?
For students who love to work with their hands, Portland YouthBuilders’ construction training program is a dream come true.
How do you capture the attention of a young person who’s more interested in watching online videos than doing schoolwork? At Portland YouthBuilders, we teach students how to create their own.
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.
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.
