Applicants for YouthBuild Being Accepted

May 2, 2006 – The Virgin Islands Housing Authority's Department of Public Relations and Resident Services is taking applicants for the third YouthBuild United States Virgin Islands Program in the St. Thomas-St. John and St. Croix Districts.

Leadership skills development, adult mentorship, counseling and support services to assist with personal challenges are also components of the program.
Residents of public housing and Section 8 may obtain registration forms from the YouthBuild office in Oswald Harris Court, all property managers' offices, and the VIHA central offices on St. Thomas and St. Croix, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Monday through Friday.
