C.S.C. Program (High School Students)
Students have an opportunity to work at a community based not-for-profit organization while gaining necessary credits for high school graduation.

YABC is a joint collaboration with seven NYC High Schools that provide participants with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience and earn money at the same time. Academic programs are designed to meet the needs of high school students who might be considering dropping out because they are behind or because they have adult responsibilities that make attending school in the daytime difficult. Students graduate with a diploma from their home school after they have earned all of their credits and passed all of the required exams while attending the YABC. Students who are registered in a YABC program remain assigned, for all accountability measures, to their sending school. Attendance is strictly monitored and documented by the YABC program.

Eligibility (YABC)
To be eligible, students should be at least 17 years old, have attended high school for four or more years, and have earned 17 or more credits.
