Thank you for your support!!!


During these times of prolonged economic instability and tight budgetary constraints, nonprofits across the board have struggled to obtain state and federal funding. YDB has not been immune to this problem. You can do your part to support YDB by contacting your  state representative to explain why it is vital to fund programs like YouthBuild Detroit.


Over nearly two decades, YDB has formed and maintained numerous community partnerships. By becoming a community partner, we can accomplish huge goals together through new innovative programs and service projects focused on improving the quality of life in the City of Detroit. If you would like to become a community partner, please call us at 313-964-2763 or write to [email protected]


YDB is actively recruiting volunteers to help with a wide range of projects. To find out more about volunteer opportunities please call 313-964-2763, ext. 105 or write to [email protected]
