CCEO YouthBuild empowers underserved young adults to rebuild their lives and communities through leadership, education, and technical training.  They run various technical training tracks from construction to computers for the students to choose.  These training skills provide them opportunity for a financially independent future.

1.  YouthBuild From the Ground Up

Description: The project will consist of a number of opportunities for everyone to get involved.  We will be sprucing up the facility by painting exteriors and murals, planting, putting up drywall, fixing up the parking lot and more.  They need a lot of help!  The more people we can get to make this re-build happen the better!  Join us March 1 to make a huge difference to these students.

2.  Clothing Donations

Description: CCEO YouthBuild also has a Clothing Closet with professional attire for the young adults to have for interviews and when they start their careers.  We are asking attendees, vendors, and staff to bring professional male and female attire to donate to the clothing closet.
