Lincoln YABC Holds Post-Secondary Fair
On March 4, Lincoln YABC hosted a post-secondary fair, where over 30 colleges and organizations were present to help our students with their post high school plans, and parents were invited to attend a CUNY/FAFSA workshop. At Lincoln, our goal is not only to help students obtain a high school diploma, but to also develop a clear, obtainable plan for their future, and the fair helped to fulfill this mission. Thanks to Shawn Henry, Internship Coordinator, for coordinating a successful event, and to Lincoln staff members Ebony Campbell, Shane Bradby, Azzie Forbes, Clara Delgado, Antonette Cammock, and Jennifer Aviles for their assistance. Thank you also to the FDR YABC for attending the fair!
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).
