To create more opportunities for youth to move forward, YouthLink is working with Project for Pride in Living (PPL) to develop 46 housing units for young people experiencing homelessness, ages 18-24. The five-story structure will be connected to YouthLink’s headquarters—and the YOC—in downtown Minneapolis.We expect to break ground in 2017.
This development fills a critical need of housing for youth experiencing homelessness, and connects them to the essential skills and pathways needed to succeed in the 21st century economy. However, YouthLink’s Ignite Change Campaign is about more than just bricks and mortar. It’s about creating a holistic, positive, vibrant community that makes it possible for youth to engage with new opportunities, broaden their horizons, and build self-esteem. It’s about inclusiveness, innovation, and connectivity—to the YOC partner services, transformative programming in education and employment, and connection to the broader community through mentorship and job placement.
