If you or someone you know recently dropped out of high school, YouthBuild Philadelphia is currently accepting applications for the Class of 2011. To apply, you must be:
- At least 18 years old, but not older than 20 on the first day of enrollment, September 8, 2010
- A resident of Philadelphia
- Formally dropped out of public high school (transfer students, GED holders and post-graduates are not eligible for the program)
Last year, we received over 900 applications for 220 available slots. Our four-step application process is designed to measure motivation and dedication. The first step is to complete an online application before the July 28, 2010 deadline. The second step is to join us for a Transformation Orientation at YouthBuild. All attendees will then be invited for an in-person interview with a panel of staff to assess readiness and motivation.
Lastly, approximately 350 applicants will be invited to Mental Toughness Training in August. The two-week orientation and selection process prepares students to step back into the classroom and onto our worksites.
Please contact Brenda Alfaro at 215-627-8671 ext.13 with any questions about the admissions process.
