Traveling around to every MYBC location during my first week on the job in December I quickly realized what a creative group of individuals the YouthBuild program attracted. All you really have to do is spend some time in the lobby of YouthBuild Just-A-Start in Cambridge or the workshop of CTI YouthBuild Lowell, where students have decorated the walls with beautifully detailed YB murals, to understand just how artistic our youth are. Knowing of their students' exceptional creativity and wanting to give them a platform on which to express it, YouthBuild USA put together YouthBuild's Got Talent - a competition that asked YB students and alumni from all over the nation to produce a video displaying the impact of the program on their lives.
As expected, many students answered the call - however only a few programs, including one of our very own (YWCA YouthBuild Springfield), made it past the initial selection round to the finals. YWCA YB Springfield is joined by YB East Harlem, YB Long Island, and YB Phoenix in the YouthBuild's Got Talent final four. In order to vote for the People's Choice winner of this year's competition, you'll need to visit YouthBuild USA on Facebook, like their page, and click on the #YBGT thumbnail. The program whose video generates the most votes by March 30th will be declared the winner and recipient of the $500 grand prize. So get moving and vote for your favorite video before it's too late!
