In affiliation with YouthBuild USA and in partnership with John Muir Charter School, New Earth is able to offer our young people a fully accredited High School Education program, career & college pathways and job opportunities that they wouldn’t otherwise have access to.
At YouthBuild programs in the United States and across the globe, low-income young people learn construction skills to help build affordable housing and other community assets such as community centers and schools. Millions of young people around the world have energy, talent, and intelligence that are being wasted solely for lack of opportunity.
We seek to join with others to help build a movement toward a more just society in which respect, love, responsibility, and cooperation are the dominant unifying values, and sufficient opportunities are available for all people in all communities to fulfill their own potential and contribute to the well-being of others.
New Earth Youthbuild believes the intelligence and positive energy of young people must be liberated and enlisted in solving the problems facing our society and communities. YPC Members undergo an election process and are chosen to represent the voices of our student body. YPC members have the desire to serve, to do meaningful work that is of value to other people and their community. They receive intensive leadership and community organizing training to mobilize local people, including neighborhood youth. Leadership development is a central element of effective community development and youth service.
