How we work with YouthBuild programs:

YouthBuild Charter School of California (YCSC) exists not as a stand-alone school, but rather as a school within a YouthBuild program. The School was launched and continues to be supported by the national organization YouthBuild USA in response to California YouthBuild programs’ need for a robust high school diploma-based education option for their students. Because of the School’s partnership with local YouthBuild programs, YCSC’s students receive not only a great education and the opportunity to earn their high school diploma, but also counseling and social wrap-around services, job-training, community service opportunities, and leadership development. YCSC’s students are between 16-24 years old, yet they are allowed to re-enroll in the K-12 school because they are a part of a YouthBuild program.  The California Department of Education allows for this through an exemption that is written into Education Code.  In order to meet the unique needs of its students, YCSC has developed a project-based, inter-disciplinary curriculum model that relies on authentic assessments and applied learning that provides numerous opportunities to connect a standards-based education to program activities at the program that are geared towards creating social justice in the communities where its students live.
