Goodwill’s YouthBuild Omaha program was able to marvel at one of the biggest projects that they had finished throughout the year in the program yesterday.
For over a month, YouthBuild participants had been working on a children’s playhouse called Kid Cafe. The project was a partnership between YouthBuild, The Hope Center for Kids and Builders of the Future. YouthBuild members got the chance to hang out with some of the kids at The Hope Center and were able to talk about the team work that was put in to making the project happen. The toy house was filled with a kids’ kitchen set and an array of toy food items and ingredients.
YouthBuild Omaha is a program for young adults ages 16 to 24 years who have struggled with school, many not having a high school diploma, and are looking to make a positive change in their lives. The YouthBuild program combines classroom learning and hands-on construction experience. Our goal is to empower YouthBuild participants to become self-sufficient.
