YouthBuild San Antonio is a community-based pre-apprenticeship program that provides job training and educational opportunities.
Youth learn vocational skills in construction, as well as in other in-demand industries, including health care.
Youth also provide community service through the required construction or rehabilitation of affordable housing for low-income or homeless families in their own neighborhoods.
Youth split their time between the vocational training work site and the classroom, where they earn their high school diploma, learn to be community leaders, and prepare for post-secondary training opportunities, including college, apprenticeships, and employment.
YouthBuild San Antonio includes significant support systems, such as mentoring, follow-up education, employment, and personal counseling services; additionally, participants participate in community service and civic engagement projects.

At the Bexar County Reentry Center, we believe that everyone deserves an opportunity to overcome the things that brought them into the criminal justice system. Everyone deserves a second chance to realize their full potential and to become a happy, fulfilled, productive citizen. Programs available through the center can increase a formerly incarcerated persons’ level of employability, help them obtain higher levels of education or vocational training, and give them pride of ownership in our community.
This program is for formerly incarcerated individuals who need resources to successfully transition back into the community.
