YOUTHBUILD RESCUE PROJECT at a Glance
Responding to COVID-19
We at YouthBuild Rescue Project join the global community in responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. As ever, our priority is to protect the health and well-being of all YouthBuild Rescue Project participants and staff. We are partnering closely with our local programs to ensure that our young people have the resources they need to stay healthy, thrive, both during this time and after.
As such, we are committed to providing health and wellness, educational, and work opportunities for YouthBuild Rescue Project participants to learn skills and best practices while seeking meaningful employment. We assist them in obtaining critical information as COVID-19 news surrounding this pandemic develops in Utah and around the World. Additionally, we will refer uninsured individuals to the Health Department for COVID-19-related diagnostic testing and services to keep everyone safe. We will make thoughtful decisions as to which of our training will be rescheduled, canceled, or moved to a virtual platform.
In these times of uncertainty, we strive to offer a foundation of stability and a warm sense of community as we navigate through this challenging environment together. Thank you for your support, donation, your concern, and your commitment to the YouthBuild Rescue Project.
Our Organization (e.g. staff, and participants) will practice these safe habits as outlined in the Utah Leads Together plan.
Making A Difference
Help Runaway Teens During COVID
During the COVID Pandemic, having a child run away from home is every parent's worst nightmare. Please help us empower our runaway teen population who are experiencing homelessness by donating money. Your donations will assist us in providing services that will enhance their health, end hunger, and support them in overcoming hardship by helping them to reach self-sufficiency, including access to housing and skills training and job opportunities.
Broad Range of Services
The Youth-Build Rescue Project will provide a broad range of services designed to enable a holistic approach to tackle social disadvantage, mental health, and behavioral problems, grief counseling, homelessness, drugs (e.g., Opioid Crisis) and alcohol issues, teen pregnancy, and juvenile delinquency by providing each participants with job skills (e.g., earn while they learn), health, and wellness educational programs, teaching them to live environmentally conscious lives, conducting community outreach and training programs and providing them with employment, and housing placement services.
Youth are the building blocks of our nation.
Helping in Our Communities
We at YouthBuild Rescue Project join the Utah community in responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Our priority is to ensure all individuals and communities have the necessary information and technology during the COVID Pandemic. We will train individuals who lived in the city to wear personal protective equipment to protect others from catching the virus. Our goal is to ensure that the Multicultural population has basic human wants and needs: food, housing, transportation services, health security, and language accessibility.
As such, the YouthBuild program leaders and program participants will share best practices with each other and members of the community, while delivering helpful resources and critical information as news surrounding this pandemic develops.
