Cornerstone and Atlas Partner on YouthBuild

May 18, 2016

Rochester’s Cornerstone Group and Atlas Builders, in conjunction with the Stadium Estates housing project, are proud to of the work that has been completed with the Urban League of Rochester’s YouthBuild program. Youth Build offers construction training, GED classes, job preparation, and placement for high school dropouts ages 18-24.

The program’s participants have been involved with many different aspects of local construction projects, which has given them valuable trade experience. Cornerstone, Atlas, and the Urban League offered YouthBuild participants an opportunity to take part in the full building spectrum of this newly constructed house. This unique opportunity to be part of a project has spanned many months, and provided a potential career path for the involved area youth.

Cornerstone and Atlas purchased an additional vacant lot from the City of Rochester in the JOSANA neighborhood and constructed a house,  built entirely by the YouthBuild program. It was overseen by the Urban League’s construction manager and other subcontractors, but most importantly was an educational experience for the participants.

A portion of the building materials were donated by outside organizations and several professional firms also volunteered their time to help subsidize the endeavor. At the end of the building process, the new home will ultimately be sold to a local family. Cornerstone and Atlas are also working with YouthBuild to possibly use their participants as laborers for the remainder of the Stadium Estates project.
