Summary

Everyday, young people in Port-au-Prince struggle for education, employment, and stability. REBUILD Globally's Apprenticeship Program addresses these vital needs by investing in our area's dedicated and talented youth by providing academic scholarships, life skills classes, one-on-one tutoring, and vocational training. 100% of program participants have avoided the gang life, teenage pregnancy, and crime all too common on the streets of Haiti's capital.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

After the devastating earthquake in 2010, the youth of Port-au-Prince face staggering challenges everyday: a lack of jobs and quality education, gang violence, absence of family support, sexual assault, teenage pregnancy, and the continued spread of HIV/AIDS. Educated, active kids with involved and caring role models have a much greater chance of avoiding these social ills.

How will this project solve this problem?

RG's Apprenticeship Program provides a much-needed opportunity for exceptional young people living in extremely difficult conditions. After a rigorous application process Apprentices enjoy academic scholarships, individualized tutoring, leadership classes, and business and artisan skills training. After completing school and program requirements, Apprentices who are at least 18 are guaranteed living wage employment with RG-providing a real and lasting solution to poverty in Haiti's capital.

Potential Long Term Impact

By equipping these young people with a strong education, valuable vocational skills, and the confidence to succeed they will become self-sustaining adults and halt the cycle of poverty that exists in Port-au-Prince.
