YouthBuild to Graduate 26 Students

On Friday, June 27th, Venice Community Housing (VCH) will celebrate the graduation of 26 students from its YouthBuild program’s 12th cycle. The event will be held at the Radisson Hotel at Los Angeles Airport. It is an opportunity for graduates’ families and VCH supporters to honor these young men and women’s efforts to stabilize their lives through education, job training, and community service and leadership development.

Fr. Gregory Boyle, SJ, Founder and CEO of Homeboy Industries, will be addressing the students in his keynote address.

The Venice YouthBuild program is an ongoing, comprehensive secondary education and job training program that helps at-risk youth gain the skills, values and confidence they need to become self-sufficient adults. The program serves over 40 at-risk youth ages 18 to 24 each year.
