YouthBuild Program Design Standards
The handbooks and curricula listed below are available from YouthBuild USA e-store, which is accessible through the YouthBuild USA Web site, www.YouthBuild.org.
All of these are important ongoing resources and references for implementing all program components. We recommend reading the handbooks before starting a YouthBuild program. The first YouthBuild Program Manual was forged out of experiences from the
first YouthBuild programs, which existed from 1984-1988, during which time five out of nine programs failed and were defunded within two years. We saw the need for clear and thorough advice up front. The YouthBuild Program Manual was updated in 1993
based on the experience of 12 new sites around the country and again in 1996 after 100 new programs were implemented.
Videos, articles, posters, and banners are also available from the YouthBuild USA e-store.
