The YouthBuild Mental Toughness selection process started on February 13, 2017 at the Phoenix Business and Workforce Development Center. Ten program candidates attended the first day of the selection process and participated in introductions, discussions and activities that promoted team work. On the second day, eleven students participated in a LEGO activity that required skills such as following directions, awareness and the ability to communicate effectively. The Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) testing was administered on February 16 and 17, 2017 to obtain an assessment of academic levels in various subjects. YouthBuild is currently waiting for drug test results for all YouthBuild program candidates.
