CITC YouthBuild program to begin recruiting early February

Cook Inlet Tribal Council’s (CITC) YouthBuild program will begin accepting applications for enrollment in early February. The YouthBuild program helps young adults between the ages of 18-24 earn their G.E.D or high school diploma, receive on-the-job training and learn construction skills.

Young adults enrolled in the CITC YouthBuild program participate in a six-part series that leads up to building low-income housing as a part of their training. Mental toughness training, education, construction education, construction on-the-job training, leadership training/volunteer work and post-YouthBuild career counseling and case management are included in the program.

Young adults interested in applying for enrollment in this program should contact CITC YouthBuild coordinators Angela LeClair at (907) 793-3270 or Eric Watson at (907) 793-3320. This program is made possible with funding from donors to CITC’s annual fund, the U.S. Department of Labor and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. To support this program, visit
