Queens Chronicle: QCH awarded $1.1M for youth job training

QCH Awarded $1.1M for youth job training | February 28, 2019: Queens Community House offers youth employment services and sector-focused occupational skills, among other things, and now will have a new program offering training in construction.

In late January, the U.S. Department of Labor announced that QCH was being awarded a YouthBuild grant of over $1 million. YouthBuild is a national education and training program that helps at-risk youth obtain their high school equivalency, earn industry-recognized credentials for in-demand occupations and undergo training to build housing for low-income or homeless people in their communities.

During the two program years of YouthBuild, QCH will serve 62 young adults who meet the criteria. The target service area is inclusive of 12 ZIP codes in the borough: 11416, 11417, 11418, 11419, 11420, 11432, 11433, 11434, 11435, 11436, 11367 and 11355.
