New Britain YouthBuild - Changing Lives, Changing Community
This newly skilled construction worker Jose Abreu speaks for his classmates and fellow construction workers when he says how much the YouthBuild program has meant to him. At a press conference under sunny blue skies, and at the first site where three Habitat for Humanity houses are being built on Willow Street in New Britain, nine aspiring builders are on their way to bright futures.
The press conference was part of the program partners' celebration of National YouthBuild Week. The event featured speeches from leaders at the City of New Britain, Capital Workforce Partners, the Finishing Trades, Adult Education, the New Britain Chamber, HRA, and Habitat for Humanity.
Here is the press alert, and look for great stories from the New Britain Herald and NBC Connecticut.
