We appreciate your support for our life-changing work with Washington, DC's disconnected youth. For our students, YouthBuild Public Charter School represents more than just a place to prepare for the GED exam; it's where they find caring adults who connect them to resources to improve and transform their lives.
YouthBuild is a hot meal, train fare to get to and from school, and a pathway to educational and professional opportunities to which students would not otherwise have access. Many of these students will be the first in their family to receive a GED and have the opportunity to attend a college or university, setting an example for future generations.
THE LEADING BARRIERS TO ECONOMIC PERSISTENCE AND SUCCESS?
Lack of financial resources, lack of childcare, and lack of transportation.
