Welcome to our website. It has been our privilege to serve the
community for the past 18 years. Our mission is to provide
technology training, work readiness skills and educational support
services for youth and adults to enhance workforce skills. As your
link to community resources, we care and want nothing more than to
know you are satisfied with us as your service provider.
We are open for Business,
Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
If you require services outside of our working hours, we will be glad to accommodate your needs, if reasonable possible. Please be sure to call 845.452.8574 to ask for more information or to make an appointment to speak with one of our representatives.
The New Directions YouthBuild AmeriCorps Partnership is a comprehensive youth development program that offers High School Equivalency (HSE) preparation, job training, counseling and leadership development for youth that left school without a diploma ages 16-24, through the construction and rehabilitation of affordable housing in their neighborhoods.
Participants pursue careers in construction, computer technology or health care.
YouthBuild students are also members of AmeriCorps, a national service organization.
An Education Award up to $1,515 that can be used for higher education is provided
for participants completing 440 service hours.
We help people transform their lives, but we can’t do it alone. Your help is critical. There are lots of ways you can help.
One-time donations are greatly appreciated but a monthly gift ($5, $10, $20 or more) would be wonderful; knowing that amount is coming in every month.
Everything we do costs money. We rely on your donations. We especially encourage former students or past recipients of our services to donate, whatever the amount can help us serve more of our community each year. So, click the green Donate button above, or the GoFundMe button below.
