YouthBuild PCS is an alternative school for young adults ages 16-24. YouthBuild PCS seeks to transform students' lives by re-engaging them in education in a nontraditional school environment. We prepare students for postsecondary education and the workplace by offering academic, vocational, and workforce development programs in English and Spanish. YouthBuild PCS believes that service to the community is an essential part of the transformative process. Students serve their community through volunteer projects and by creating housing for low-income residents in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area.
