Building a Stronger Community

Banks Building Youth Empowerment CenterBanks Building Construction with the Institute for Workforce Innovation (IWI)’s Americorps Project YouthBuild:

For the past two years, we’ve donated our services to the City of Gainesville and IWI to plan the Banks-Cosby Youth Empowerment Center along 6th Street. Our staff will provide free construction management services and hands-on, field learning opportunities to IWI Project YouthBuild participants once construction begins.

Oelrich Construction is a proud sponsor of this 7-month program which helps low income students between the ages of 16-24 attain their high school diploma, rehabilitate low income housing and earn nationally-recognized construction certifications.
