Build UP - Build Urban Prosperity
Build UP is the nation’s first and only workforce development model that provides low-income youth with career-ready skills through paid apprenticeships with industry-aligned secondary and early-postsecondary academic coursework, leading them to become educated, credentialed, and empowered civic leaders, workers, homeowners and landlords.
In the fall of 2018, Build UP youth took up residence in a newly-renovated, temporary facility near Ensley's P.D. Jackson-Olin High School- their first Build UP site, with an aggressive 5 year plan to pioneer 25 sites nationally.
Mark Martin, CEO, of Build UP was featured on “Let’s Talk Birmingham” radio show on March 3, 2019.
