Clark County residents between the ages of 17 and 24 who have left high school without a diploma may qualify through YouthBuild for a free education and training program aimed at obtaining a GED or diploma, job-related skills and construction certifications.

YouthBuild information sessions will be held 4 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 6 and Jan. 15, at Partners in Careers, 3210 N.E. 52nd St. in Vancouver. To register, contact Sam Capeloto at 360-696-8417, ext. 110, or sam@swwpic.org.

YouthBuild participants will have the opportunity, at no cost, to obtain a GED or high school diploma; gain two nationally recognized construction certifications; participate in building a house for a family in need; and receive services, including job, college and career preparation.

Led by the Southwest Washington Workforce Development Council, YouthBuild is a collaboration of nonprofit organizations that includes Partners in Careers, Evergreen Habitat for Humanity, Vancouver Housing Authority and WorkSource.
