If there’s one word I’ve heard associated with YouthBuild more than any other, it’s “family”.
At every MYBC event, in countless statements from YouthBuild programs around the country, and even in emails and social media interactions between students and staff, it’s there: “family”.
As I’m sure many of you have heard, we adopted a new family member earlier this year, and they want to get to know some of their other YouthBuild brothers and sisters from around the state. So they’ve organized "Build Day", an opportunity for students and staff from around the Commonwealth to come together at the newest Massachusetts YouthBuild program, YouthBuild North Shore, and collaborate on tasks that YouthBuilders know best -- flooring, carpentry and painting -- in a space next door that will hold offices for the YouthBuild team, and an area for students to work, socialize, and learn with each other.
Build Day will take place at 98 Lafayette Street in Salem, MA on November 13th from 12-5. YB North Shore is hoping to get students and staff from as many MYBC programs as possible, and have even gone so far as to bribe everybody with pizza. How great is that?
RVSP to Build Day and get to know your fellow YouthBuilders while you help them improve their home in Salem!
