At YouthBuild Long Island, we understand that helping our students succeed doesn't end on Graduation Day.
Prior to graduation, YouthBuild staff works to build partnerships with Long Island’s corporate partners in an effort to align YouthBuild students’ interests and goals with potential career and internship opportunities. Students are provided resume writing and interview skill workshops, and attend multiple job/college fairs and company tours.
YouthBuild continues to provide our graduates college and career counseling post-graduation that can lead to placement into a college education program or employment. Our trained staff works to provide additional follow-up to support retention and completion in these placements.
Graduates are invited to visit the YouthBuild Long Island Career Zone page on Facebook for day-to-day updates on career fairs and employement opportunities. For more information, contact YouthBuild's Career Placement Specialist, Joseph Perillo, OWDS, GCDF at 631.940.8841 x10.
