First lady Michelle Obama hugs members of YouthBuild after she spoke at an event on the Mall on Tuesday. YouthBuild members built components of a house that will be given to a single mother whose home was damaged by a hurricane. The event marked the 30th anniversary of the organization, which helps low-income youths work toward a GED or high school diploma while being trained to build affordable homes.
