Program helping young people with education, job skills receives big boost

A program that helps young people across the country gets a big boost from a major retailer.  A total of $5 million was given to YouthBuild USA from Wal-Mart.

The local chapter got a piece of the check to the tune of $50,000.  Lynn Rippy with Youthbuild says, "What it is going to do for us, what it has done for us, is allowed us to ramp up even further our support of transitions program at at our local YouthBuild."

Through YouthBuild programs, students can earn their high school diplomas or GED's.  They can also learn job skills while building affordable housing for homeless and low-income students.
