Our Relationship With YouthBuild USA

About YouthBuild:

YouthBuild is a non-profit youth development organization which provides education, counseling, and job skills to low-income young people between the ages of 16 to 24 who have dropped out of high school. The YouthBuild program has five components: construction, education, counseling, leadership, and graduate opportunity. There are currently over 250 YouthBuild programs in the United States. For more information about YouthBuild, visit their website: youthbuild.org

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 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.
