■ Dropouts are substantially more likely to rely on public assistance than those with a high school
diploma. The estimated lifetime revenue loss for
male dropouts ages 25-34 is $944 billion. The cost to the public of their crime and welfare benefits is estimated to total $24 billion annually.
Dropouts contribute to state and federal tax coffers
at only about one-half the rate of high school
graduates; over a working lifetime about $60,000
less, or $50 billion annually for the 23 million
high school non-completers, ages 18-67.
Are they youth “at risk”? Or youth “at promise”……?

CCS, Inc. owns and manages rental property for low-income families.
In the fall of 2003, CCS completed construction of a 26-lot subdivision at Pierpont and Green. The project is a mixed income development, with half of the homes available for low-income buyers. Phase 2, with 18 units, is underway this year.
In December, 1999, CCS formed a wholly-owned subsidiary limited liability corporation-CCS Construction LLC--as a full service general contractor.
As a revenue-generating arm of the nonprofit, CCS Construction now provides training for YouthBuild students, as well as contracting both residential and light commercial work. The company is a union contractor.
