Mission Statement

YouthBuild Philadelphia Charter School provides out-of-school youth in Philadelphia with the broadest range of tools, supports and opportunities available to become self-sufficient, responsible and productive citizens in their community.

Students earn their high school diplomas while learning valuable job skills and engaging in community service projects. YouthBuild Philadelphia rebuilds lives and communities!

Description

Our Program
YouthBuild Philadelphia's program includes a diploma track, vocational training (construction, technology and nursing) and community service. In addition, the school provides students with resources and support systems to maneuver the program, develop a sense of empowerment, and transition into full-time jobs, post-secondary educational and training opportunities, and service positions with AmeriCorps.

Duration
YouthBuild Philadelphia enrolls 200 students per year. Participants are divided into two groups that spend alternate six-week sessions in the classroom and the worksite. Students function on a five-day, 12-month schedule from September to August (with time off during select holidays and seasonal events).

Weekly Program Hours:

Monday & Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 3:35 p.m.
