YABC Today, College Tomorrow!
On Friday, October 24th, 25 Lincoln YABC students got a firsthand look at the opportunities available to them after high school during a college tour trip to The Lincoln University and Delaware State University. Students had the chance to meet admissions officers, tour the campuses and speak with students who are first generation undergraduates. Students also had the chance to speak with undergraduates on the dorm experience and got advice on completing their college applications which they found helpful. Because of the college tour, Zevveron, a potential January 2015 graduate discovered that he “wants to go to a historically black college.” He added, “Lincoln University, that’s the type of college I want to go to.” Overall the college tour was a great experience for students.

Lincoln YABC Mission Statement
To develop in our students a sense of self in both a social-emotional and academic environment. To demonstrate to our students through the use of teamwork and communication between students, advocates, and teachers how to better them in the three main objectives of Abraham Lincoln YABC:
1) Obtain a High School Diploma
2) Work with students to help them change the behaviors that brought them to us
3) Develop a clear, obtainable plan for the future
Together with our community ‐based partner Good Shepherd Services, we believe that every student deserves a second chance. We all make mistakes in our lives and we need to look forward to success rather than look to the mistakes we made in the past. We use portfolio assessment where the student develops a product in each class every night. Student attendance therefore is of utmost importance! Electives offered: Psychology, Police and Crime, CUNY Assessment Preparation in Math and English, Virtual Enterprise.
Community Based Organization Services: All students receive: Learning to Work, youth development programming, case counseling, career counseling, a primary person, post secondary planning, college & career exploration (including college campus visits & overnight trips); all registered students are eligible for paid internships & Learning to Work career education classes(credit‐bearing career exploration classes).
