YouthBuild’s one-of-a-kind program combines an accelerated academic program with vocational training and service learning.  We are the largest YouthBuild program in the U.S. and one of Pennsylvania’s first charter schools.  As an AmeriCorps program, we provide thousands of hours of valuable service to Philadelphia every year.

Our school has three core values: Excellence, Respect, and Perseverance.  We believe that every student, regardless of his or her past, can embrace these values and achieve anything.
