Founded in 1999, Project Rebuild is a nonprofit training program in Canton that offers young adults ages 16 to 24, who have dropped out of school, a way to acquire job-ready, building-trade skills while earning their high school diplomas or GED certificates.
The goal of Project Rebuild is twofold: to help at-risk young adults to become re-engaged in their community and to become productive citizens.
An affiliate of the YouthBuild USA program, Project Rebuild offers students real-world training through various public service projects.
The nonprofit works in partnership with other nonprofits and private and public entities, all in a bid to help students develop learning and leadership skills and to be better prepared for employment and self-sufficiency.
In addition to skills training, Project Rebuild students also take part in a number of public service projects, including neighborhood cleanups and home construction projects in partnership with other nonprofits.
