A MOCKINGBIRD OPPORTUNITY LEARNING PROGRAM: COMBINES ADULT BASIC EDUCATION, WORKFORCE PREPARATION & WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT
Health & Human Service Training Partnership
We believe it is part of our core mission to not only prepare young people for entry-level jobs, but to provide the academic rigor and classroom environment to create life-long learners who are better equipped for the challenges of college and advanced training.
That is why YouthBuild Schenectady has undergone a major initiative to redevelop our curriculum to create a college preparatory environment and to align to common core and college entrance requirements. The education model at YouthBuild Schenectady is a unique “Learn by Doing’ model that incorporates authentic learning through project based, contextualized lessons.
What does this mean? Instead of teaching English, Math, Social Studies, and Science separately, YouthBuild Schenectady teaches these subjects in a blended format in the context of a real world problem that has been identified by local high demand, high growth employers.
