BENEFITING: PROVIDENCE PLAN
YouthBuild Providence is dedicated to ensuring that Providence youth have a path to educational fulfillment by providing opportunities for both GED completion and high school diploma attainment. YouthBuild also trains its high school students in construction and other high demand service areas. With a focus on education, YouthBuild Providence understands the importance of a safe and comfortable bed for children. As the Build-a-Bed website states:
“When children in our neighborhood and around the state lack sleep, they are more prone to learning challenges like attention deficit disorder, which contributes to long-term educational deficit and social costs beyond measure – costs that society must tackle when the children are adults."
