To enhance the quality of life and health for Philadelphians through community-based and culturally competent interventions.

YOACAP operates a Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) program under the Pre-Apprenticeship Pilot model, Project BUILD (PB). PB’s goal is to recruit and engage opportunity youth 18-24 with paid/unpaid work experience and career-connected building trade training that aligns with partnering registered apprenticeship programs.  The program equips participants with industry-recognized credentials to connect them with careers in the high-growth building trades, like carpenters, finishing trades institute (FTI), plumbers, electricians, ironworkers, and more. Keys to youth’s success is the development of relationships with youth system providers, construction companies, and local unions that reflect participants’ interests in pipelines of varying options for additional training, education, and employment opportunities within the building trades.
YOACAP offers an eight-month Pre-Apprenticeship Program that engages a minimum of 15 participants in occupational skills training and work experience in the building trades. By the end of each cohort, participants will have completed 420+ hours of classroom learning (with hands-on component), 300+ hours of work experience, and obtaining nationally-recognized certifications, common prerequisites for both entry-level jobs and Apprenticeships in the industry. The Pre-Apprenticeship program is for participants to transition into a registered apprenticeship successfully. Project BUILD also has a component for high school aged students who may not be interested in attending college or who may want to learn more about the building trades. To ask questions or enroll into Project BUILD, please call 215.851.1968 and go to @YOACAPphilly to visually learn about all of YOACAP’s youth programming.
