“A community where everyone involved will be fully committed to their success, both in the school and beyond.”
YouthBuild is currently engaged in a set of strategies to achieve its dual objectives of dropout prevention and recovery – by establishing YouthBuild Prep as an independent public high school and expanding its middle school interventions, in partnership with local schools.
YOUTHBUILD PREPARATORY ACADEMY WILL:
• Create a Sense of Community
• Engage Family and Community
• Promote Healthy Living
YouthBuild has been partnering with middle school principals to support student persistence through a program called “YouthBuild New Beginnings.” This program ensures that students who are at risk of academic failure can stay engaged in learning and have access to educational opportunities. YouthBuild Prep has made it a mission of expanding this even further by providing a supported path to a High School diploma for youth facing extraordinary circumstances.
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
