Push Buffalo and WNY Americorps came out today to announce the availability of 60 paid training positions in housing renovation for out-of-school individuals between the ages of 16 and 24 as well as dates for two open houses for interested applicants. The positions will be funded through the Federal YouthBuild program, which combines on-site construction training with daily GED classes for high-school dropouts in neighborhoods with high poverty rates.
The 60 trainees will serve with WNY AmeriCorps on housing renovation projects sponsored by PUSH Buffalo and other community-based partners. Trainees will begin renovating two vacant West Side houses in October. The first training site, a house at 10 Winter Street, will include many "green design" features, including geothermal heating and solar paneling, providing trainees with broad exposure to cutting-edge environmentally-friendly construction techniques.
