Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, IHEs, schools, and tribes to provide pre-apprenticeship services in support of occupational skills training, education, and employment services for at-risk youth between the ages of 16 and 24. Required registrations can take up to four weeks. Participating youth will perform meaningful work and services to their communities.

In addition to construction skills training, YouthBuild applicants may include occupational skills training in other in-demand industries. This expansion into additional in-demand industries is the Construction Plus component, a priority in this grant competition.

In Fiscal Year (FY) 2019, DOL hopes to serve approximately 5,250 participants during the grant period of performance, with approximately 70 projects awarded across the country.

Pre-apprenticeship means a program designed to prepare individuals to enter and succeed in an apprenticeship program registered under the Act of August 16, 1937 (commonly known as the “National Apprenticeship Act”; 50 Stat.664, chapter 663; 29 U.S.C. 50 et seq.)(referred to in this part as a “registered apprenticeship” or “registered
apprenticeship program”) and includes the following elements:
1) Training and curriculum that aligns with the skill needs of employers in the economy of the State or region involved;
2) Access to educational and career counseling and other supportive services, directly or indirectly;
3) Hands-on, meaningful learning activities that are connected to education and training activities, such as exploring career options, and understanding how the skills acquired through coursework can be applied toward a future career;
4) Opportunities to attain at least one industry-recognized credential; and
5) A partnership with one or more registered apprenticeship programs that assists in placing individuals who complete the pre-apprenticeship program in a registered apprenticeship program.
