Lincoln YABC Takes Leadership Trip
On November 1, the YABC program at Abraham Lincoln High School went to Rhinebeck, NY to Camp Ramapo for an all-day retreat where participants completed high ropes challenges, team-building activities and icebreakers. Many had never been in such a rustic setting and really enjoyed the changing leaves and the clear skies. Everyone had such a fun trip and the only complaint from anyone was “why can’t we stay longer?” Thanks to Jennifer Aviles, Program Director; Ebony Campbell, Social Worker; Learning to Work Coordinators Clara Delgado and Shawn Henry; and Advocate Counselors Azzie Forbes and Jerry Cadet for accompanying youth on this exciting trip.
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, postsecondary 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).
