Youthbuild Hale County
HERO's Youthbuild program is a youth and community development program that addresses core issues facing low-income communities: housing, education, employment, crime prevention and leadership development. In Youthbuild programs, low-income people ages 16-24 work toward their GED or high school diploma, learn job skills, serve their communities by building affordable housing and transform their own lives and roles in the community.
