Quad YouthBuild

Quad YouthBuild is a youth and community development program that addresses core issues facing low-income communities.

Our mission is to unleash the intelligence and positive energy of low-income youth to rebuild their communities and their lives. Through YouthBuild, we hope to see many positive changes in Tangipahoa Parish and the surrounding areas. Quad YouthBuild serves 65 - 70 disadvantaged youth ages 16-24 from South Louisiana’s rural, impoverished communities. According to the Camelot Index, Louisiana ranks dead last in the nation in state measures of economic vitality, education, health, crime and governance. Quad YouthBuild is extremely vital to the success of the youth in these rural communities as no alternative programs exist beyond YouthBuild to assist those young people who did not make it in the standard school setting. The disadvantaged, disconnected youth within these communities are at-risk for school failure, economic dependency, incarceration, and death as proven by the high poverty rates, high unemployment rates, and low graduation rates. Quad YouthBuild offers a quality youth and community development program that simultaneously address core issues facing low-income rural communities: housing, education, employment, crime prevention, and leadership development. In Quad YouthBuild, low-income young people ages 16-24 are able to work toward their GEDs, learn job skills and serve their communities by building affordable housing, and transform their own lives and roles in society.

Mission: To unleash the intelligence and positive energy of low-income youth to rebuild their communities and their lives.

NTCC WorkReady U - Adult Education Program

Maggie Williams began her HiSET journey, 5 years ago, at the quad area campus. Determined to achieve her goals, Maggie studied diligently and passed each HISET test, with the exception of Math.

When the quad area campus closed, Maggie, along with some of her fellow classmates, joined the Hammond Night Class. Maggie continued to put in countless hours preparing to take the math test. Though she faced challenges, and a few disappointments, she did not give up.

A woman of faith, she maintained a humble spirit and a positive attitude. She attended class regularly and always had encouraging interaction with her classmates as well as her instructors. Maggie enjoyed night class so much that she convinced her husband to join the class.

On January 14th, 2020, Maggie took and passed the HISET math test with a score of 13! Maggie’s success is celebrated by her husband, 13-year-old daughter and her Adult Ed/Work ready U instructors, (pictured: Cindy Tynes, Troylynn Williams) and her classmates.

Maggie hopes to see her all of her classmates reach their HiSET goals as well!

Great job Maggie! We'll see you at Graduation on May 12, 2020!
The sky is the limit for you!

H2Geaux is the Y's community aquatics program that works in partnership with NORDC and local charter schools to provide free, water-safety lessons to 3rd and 4th grade students during the school year. The program operates exclusively in under-served communities, and for many of the kids in the program, it's their first time swimming. To make sure every student has the basic swim gear, the YMCA provides new swim caps and towels. Each year, the YMCA also holds a swim suit drive to collect bathing suit donations for young swimmers. Last year, H2Geaux worked with over 500 New Orleans students.

If you would like to drop off swimsuits, you can bring them to Quad YouthBuild and we will get them to where they need to go!

Some of our Quad YouthBuilders have been able to do a six week work experience with area businesses. Thank you to Vogue Salon, DCS Family Health Clinic, and Tangipahoa Parish Animal Shelter for allowing our young men and women to get hands-on training and work experience in career fields they are interested in. It’s partners like you that are helping to successfully change the lives of youth in our community! #youthbuild #quadyouthbuild
