About Us

YouthBuild Charter School of California (YCSC) is a public school, chartered by the Inyo County Superintendent of Schools, dedicated to providing an effective alternative education for youth who have not succeeded in traditional school settings. Students come to YCSC to earn a high school diploma and to develop a number of personal skills that will equip them for productive, fulfilling futures. Our approach to education is competency-based; students are guided through a process that results in relevant demonstrations of learning through presentations and projects that demonstrate mastery of state standards. Our instructional strategy is project-based and interdisciplinary, with authentic assessments designed by our teachers.

Our belief in the value of youth as leaders and agents of change in their communities are rooted in the nationally-acclaimed YouthBuild program model. Students at YCSC are 16-24 year-old participants in one of several local YouthBuild programs in California. Teachers at YCSC provide students with a classroom-based high school curriculum that values the culture and aspirations of youth while understanding the challenges that students face in under-resourced communities. Currently we provide the education program at 18 YouthBuild programs in California. We are looking to hire teachers in the Greater Los Angeles area for the 2019-2020 school year. We are looking for teachers who are creative, flexible, progressive, and who truly care about youth who have not done well in traditional school settings.
