Short title. This act shall be known and may be cited as the "New York state YouthBuild act". § 2. Legislative intent. The legislature seeks to support economically disadvantaged youth, especially youth who have not finished high school, to obtain the education, work experience skills training, personal coun- seling, leadership development skills training, job placement assist- ance, and long-term follow-up services necessary for them to achieve permanent economic self-sufficiency, while at the same time providing valuable community service that addresses urgent community needs includ- ing the demand for affordable housing and the need for young role models and mentors for younger teenagers and children. The legislature further intends to foster the development of leader- ship skills and a commitment to community development among youth and to ensure maximum educational achievement of program participants through high school diploma or the equivalent attainment and transition to institutions of higher education, where appropriate. The legislature further intends to provide communities the opportunity to establish or rebuild neighborhood stability in economically depressed and low-income areas, as well as historic areas requiring restoration or preservation, while providing economically disadvantaged youth and youth who have not finished high school an opportunity for a meaningful participation in society.
