LOUISVILLE, KY (December 28, 2018) - Join YouthBuild Louisville and Hand in Hand Ministries Friday, December 28th from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at Butchertown Pizza Hall, 1301 Story Avenue, 40206, to support two great causes with a night of live music, free pizza, cash bar, and fun! This event is to raise money for YouthBuild Louisville students to go on an immersion trip to Belize with Hand in Hand Ministries Building for Change Program. Live music will be provided by Wild Buffalo, the Mike Grissom Duo, Zenpen, and Nameless.
Hand in Hand Ministries has built over 330 homes in Belize City since 2002. Many Belizean families live in substandard housing. Hand in Hand volunteers make a difference by hammering out 16’×20′ wooden homes that keep families dry during Belize’s six-month-long rainy season. Volunteers work side-by-side with our Building for Change partners, forming close personal connections as they complete construction together. Go to http://www.myhandinhand.org/belize/ to learn more about Hand in Hand’s Belize immersion trips.
“Every YouthBuild student serves as an AmeriCorps Volunteer during their time at YouthBuild and learn the value of community service. This coupled with construction training and development of affordable housing in Louisville prepares them for our partnership with Hand & Hand Ministries traveling to Belize to build homes. While being inspired to serve, students will use their new skills to help others through this international opportunity. It’s a win-win for both organizations!” Lynn Rippy, YouthBuild President/CEO.
Established in 2001, YouthBuild Louisville has provided many services to the community such as the building and the rehabilitation of homes for low-income families, development of community gardens, and planting of hundreds of trees. Each Fall, 35 students are enrolled in the nine-month program, each completing 450 hours of community service in order to qualify for an AmeriCorps Education Scholarship. YouthBuild’s vision is that through the development of life and job skills, students are inspired to reach lifelong success as they become strong, confident young adults with a commitment to work, education, family and community.
