Our Mission

Transforming Lives and Communities

YouthBuild Philadelphia Charter School (official registered name Philadelphia Youth for Change) is a second chance program for what are generally considered to be the hardest to serve youth: inner-city, high school dropouts who have aged out of the public school system.  We offer motivated young people the opportunity to earn a high school diploma and prepare for careers and college.

Our program combines a rigorous academic curriculum with hands-on vocational training through community service. Students learn a trade and earn industry-recognized certification (construction, technology, or healthcare) as they contribute to the social health and infrastructure of Philadelphia. As part-time AmeriCorps members, each student completes a minimum of 675 hours of service during the school year.

A highly individualized program, our staff is focused on the development of each student's full potential. Our multi-layered support system ensures that every student has at least two positive adult role models, and we place an emphasis on creating and realizing post-secondary goals.

Since 1992, over 1700 former dropouts have earned diplomas at YouthBuild. Today, they are in college, trade schools, and meaningful careers. Together, we are rebuilding Philadelphia.
