Honolulu young people have a new tool to help them obtain important occupational skills while transforming their own community. The City Department of Community Services Work Hawaii Division proudly announces the launch of the YouthBuild Honolulu website at: youthbuildhonolulu.org.
“We are excited about our new website and the fact that we will be able to reach our young people where they are: online.” said Leina’ala Nakamura, Assistant Administrator of the Work Hawaii Division.
The new mobile-friendly website offers a wealth of information about the program including application and eligibility requirements, a photo gallery to showcase the efforts of the students in the program as well as featured student success stories. Content will be updated on a regular basis with news, events, graduations, open enrollment, and other exciting happenings. Visitors are encouraged to explore the website and contact YouthBuild with any questions at: youthbuildhonolulu.org/about-us/contact.
The YouthBuild Honolulu website was created in partnership with Hawaii Information Consortium, LLC, the official Internet portal manager of eHawaii.gov.
YouthBuild Honolulu, an affiliate member of YouthBuild USA is an alternative education and occupation skills training program that focuses on preparing non-high school graduates, ages 17.5 to 24 to become part of a critical “young adult pipeline” of workers to replace the many experienced workers who are exiting our workforce in local high growth and high demand industries such as education, health, business services and leisure and hospitality (tourism) while simultaneously increasing the supply of affordable housing for Honolulu’s low-income families.
Hawaii’s official Internet portal, eHawaii.gov, is managed by Hawaii Information Consortium, LLC, a Hawaii corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of eGovernment firm, NIC Inc.
