YouthBuild Winston-Salem is a nine-month program that offers eligible high school drop-outs the opportunity to get paid while they earn their GED and receive training and certification in a construction trade, nursing assistance, pharmacy technology, facility maintenance, or advanced manufacturing.

All YouthBuild participants also receive a personal development plan as well as assistance after they complete the program to find a job or continue their education.

To be eligible, applicants must be a high-school dropout without a GED and be between 16 and 24 years old on the date of enrollment.

Applicants must also meet at least one of these requirements: live in a low-income household, be a current or former foster youth, have a disability, be the child of an incarcerated parent, be a youth or adult offender, or be a migrant farm worker youth.
