Because we reengage young people who have dropped out of school, the application process at YouthBuild Poughkeepsie has five essential steps:
Step 1: Complete this application and submit before the deadline of Monday September 26, 2016
Step 2: All applicants meeting the eligibility requirements will be scheduled to take the TABE (Test Of Adult Basic Education). You must take the test and score above the 5th grade level.
Step 3: All applicants who are contacted to continue the enrollment process must attend an information session. If you are under 18, you must attend the session with your parent or guardian. Information session dates will be posted on our website or will be sent to your email. You must attend the information session so we can tell you more about the program, answer questions and complete the interview assessment.
Step 4: All applicants who complete steps 1-3 will be invited to Pre-YouthBuild scheduled to start October 3, 2016. Upon successful completion, you will be invited to Mental Toughness Training, November 7 - 18, 2016. Students must attend all days of Pre-YouthBuild and Mental Toughness Training before you are enrolled in YouthBuild.
The deadline to submit this application is Monday September 26, 2016
