village, commnity, us

Build Trybe provides experiential learning opportunities through learning farms, fabrication shops, and teaching kitchens. Spaces that we gratefully steward running classes, workshops, community events, mentorship programs, and more. Build Trybe trains youth aged 16 and over in advanced trades programming. We create real-world experiences and run businesses with our youth preparing them for employment opportunities in the community.  Apprentices in the Build Trybe program are paid allowing them to save for first cars, apartments, and trade tools. As the youth show aptitude and job readiness, Build Trybe then partners these young adults with skilled tradespeople, advanced training programs, and employers. 
 

For younger youth, Build Trybe runs workshops and classes, teaching them life skills and engaging them in nature, critical thinking, and healthy living.
 

Build Trybe focuses on youth facing a variety of challenges. Many of our youth are aging out of foster care, homeless, or lacking key support. We engage their incredible resiliency and their desire to create a positive life for themselves and those around them. Our role is one of empowerment and guidance setting them up as best we can for future stability, community connection, and success.
