Stage 2 - Orientation
Each applicant that meets the minimum eligibility requirements is invited to an initial orientation, during which staff members describe the YouthBuild PCS admissions process, and various program components. Applicants must be on time for the Orientation session.
The school contacts each applicant that does not meet the minimum prerequisites with a reason for his/her ineligibility.
Stage 3 - Mental Toughness Training (MTT)
YouthBuild PCS extends and invitation for applicants to return for "Mental Toughness Training," an intensive, one week selection process designed to introduce individuals to the YouthBuild model of learning (and prepare them to step back into the classroom).
Preparation is achieved through a series of workshops, leadership exercises and team building activities. During Mental Toughness, students must adhere to a series of rules and guidelines to complete the application process. Applicants must be on time each day of MTT. While YouthBuild PCS does not discriminate against otherwise eligible applicants, the school's charter does permit it to reject the application of any applicant who fails to demonstrate punctuality and motivation to attend the school.
All applicants will be required to provide all necessary personal documentation prior to enrollment (in addition to other required paperwork).
If there are more applicants than there are openings available in the school, then YouthBuild PCS will use a lottery to determine which of those applicants are enrolled. Applicants not selected in the lottery will be placed on a wait list in the order they are drawn.
If you have questions or need additional information, please contact the Registrar Iris Mata at (202) 319-0141.
