Young Urban Builders

Now Accepting Applications!

The Young Urban Builders program was started in 2018 as a way to address youth unemployment and perform owner-occupied rehabilitation in the West Broad Neighborhood. 

The program is designed to provide job training and experience while working on community projects and aiding in neighborhood revitalization.

YUB duties and responsibilities include:

  • learning and practicing workplace and tool safety
  • proper use and maintenance of tools
  • developing strong work ethics and basic job skills
  • reading blueprints and interpreting written instructions
  • using measurement tools and applied mathematics

YUB students are involved at all stages in the rehabilitation process to allow for a variety of skills to be developed.

Requirements

Students must be between 16 and 25 years of age.

Homeowners in the West Broad neighborhood that are interested in repairs, can complete a home survey and return it to the Athens Land Trust office. 

YUB students work with YUB Coordinator Lawrence Jones on a West Broad house.

We are accepting applications for the 2021-2022 school year. We will accept applications until all positions are filled. Students ages 16-25 who are interested in becoming a YUB student should send a completed application to the Athens Land Trust office: 685 North Pope Street, Athens, GA 30601, or emailed to Colin Blodorn colin@athenslandtrust.org
