Description of your role and duties: My responsibilities and duties were to create flyers for recruiting mentors and brochures about the program. I also worked with youth by interviewing them individually and learning about themselves and what brought them to YouthBuild and what their plans are after leaving there.
Description of the culture of the place: YBP is an alternative high school program. It is a comfortable environment. However, the setting is different from other schools. There are two classrooms where students do there work online through a program called Penn Foster. The other side of the program is that they have a construction site where they go and build and learn construction and leadership skills to help their community and neighborhood. The dress code is c casual but professional. Students have a uniform which includes khaki pants and a black shirt with the YBP logo. The majority of the students here are minorities and are underrepresented.
