BUILD TRYBE

/bild//trīb/

Build Trybe (formally known as Healthy Living & Food Systems) is a mentorship community that builds health, independence and empowers youth with employable skills. It is a bridge connecting youth, who lack a stable support system, to opportunity. Our team of trade experts and community partners introduce and connect youth to three skill-based career paths:

Culinary

Construction

  2. Advanced building trades training through Maker Village KC.
  3. Connection to jobs and additional trainings through a network of building trade companies.
