HABD’s Section 3 Program connects residents with workforce development, employment, and economic opportunities through contracted partnerships with participating employers. Eligible program participants must complete an application (self-certification and skills form) and readiness assessment to help demonstrate which careers they may be best suited for. Once the assessment is complete, the Section 3 team will work to pair program participants with work opportunities that best align with their career interests and skill.
In 2022, HABD was the recipient of a $1.5 Million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor to spearhead Birmingham’s YouthBuild program. The program caters to young residents ages 16-24.
