Brian McPherson on YouthBuild Boston and Why "Somebody's gotta make sure the fire stays lit."

In this episode of the Mass Construction Show I speak with Brian McPherson, Executive Director at YouthBuild Boston. Brian explains what YouthBuild Boston does, the many ways the community benefits from the program, where the program sources funding, and how an individual or organization can get involved.

There are four programs at YouthBuild Boston:

  1. The Building Trades Exploration (BTE) Program begins with a three-week mental toughness training to help participants show up on time, be committed, maintain a drug-free lifestyle, and work on goal setting.
  2. The Pre-Apprentice (PA) Program is the flagship of their programming.
  3. The Designery is available to some high school students to teach architectural principles they need to go into the architectural career pattern so they can be prepared for admission and participation in design schools.
  4. The Facilities Maintenance Program is an 18-month long program with no age limit. Participants work Monday through Friday in the field and spend Saturdays taking classes at Wentworth Institute of Technology where they earn an associates degree.

Brian has two rules that will serve anyone well: be where you’re supposed to be, and be doing what you’re supposed to be doing. Give a listen for an important story about why he left a GC to lead YouthBuild Boston. Then, when you’re moved to act, contact him directly at Brian@YBBoston.org.

Remember please, rate, review, share, and enjoy the show!
