Turnaround strives to transform public education so that high-poverty schools across America are designed to confront the predictable and recurring challenges of poverty as they manifest inside schools. Turnaround has designed a targeted intervention to mitigate the impact of traumatic stress on child development. In each partner school, Turnaround creates a student support system, trains teachers in proven classroom management and instructional strategies, and works with school leaders to build a high-performing culture. This allows every child to develop the social, emotional, and academic skills to succeed in school and in life.

In YouthBuild programs, low-income young people ages 16 to 24 work full-time for 6 to 24 months toward their GEDs or high school diplomas while learning job skills by building affordable housing for homeless and low-income people in their communities. Emphasis is placed on leadership development, community service, and the creation of a positive mini-community of adults and youth committed to each other’s success. Students may earn AmeriCorps education awards through their homebuilding and other community service. At exit, they are placed in college, jobs, or both.
