Our mission is to provide at-risk young adults with the education and training necessary to become gainfully employed and build a better future.

Come every day. Keep coming even after you get your diploma, because YBLC is still there for you. Don’t take this opportunity for granted because they care.

It gets tough, but stick it out with a positive attitude. It will be worth it in the end.
