The Young Adult Learning Center is proud to officially unveil our full-day integrated programâYALC Complete! As the name suggests, this is an opportunity for students to take full advantage of the full spectrum of programming offered at the Young Adult Learning Center. YALC Complete participants are on site from 9am- 3:30pm Monday through Friday (which includes one thirty minute break midday complete with a delicious lunch).
These motivated students are enrolled in two sets of classes: Academic courses geared towards critical thinking and success on the GED exam as well as a career and technical program focused on either (1) attaining a pre-apprenticeship certification in facilities maintenance or (2) various industry standard certifications in information technology, including the full Microsoft Office Suite. Teachers from the core- academic program and the workforce credential programs engage in collaborative planning to ensure instruction is contextualized and highly relevant.
In addition to the course work associated with the program, students have access to the robust wrap-around services offered at the YALC including career preparation, post-secondary readiness and counseling/ supportive services and groups. They engage in a student-led SMART goal setting and maintenance process through their tenure in the program. When these young people graduate the program, they are educated, skilled and completely ready for success!
