High School Diploma
YouthBuild Charter School of California (YCSC) is a project-based charter school that serves young people ages 16+. Many of the young people come from low income families in underserved communities and have been unsuccessful or pushed out of the traditional school system. YCSC provides these young people with another opportunity to earn their high school diploma by taking a different approach to education.
About the Program
Project Based Learning
Project based learning allows young people to take ownership of their education by using what they learn in the classroom and applying it to real world problems.
YCSC teachers provide young people with the appropriate modifications and accommodations in order to ensure that learning is accessible to all students.
Critical Thinking Skills
YCSC teachers work towards elevating the level of thinking used by the young people by providing them with the tools and skills necessary to ask questions, developing their own answers, and participate in meaningful discussions.
