Senator Owen Johnson was pleased to meet with YouthBuild Long Island students who recently visited Albany to discuss their program’s successes in the Long Island community.

United Way’s YouthBuild Long Island is a free youth and community development program, and alternative school, that addresses core issues facing low-income communities.  At YouthBuild, young men and women, ages 18-24, work toward their General Equivalency Diploma while learning hands-on job skills.
