Message from the School

YouthBuild DC Public Charter School (YBPCS) is an alternative high school for 16-24 year-olds seeking to transform their lives by re-engaging in a non-traditional educational environment. We prepare students for post-secondary education and the workplace by offering academic, vocational, and workforce development programs in English and Spanish. Community service projects also drive students’ personal transformation throughout the year.
