After 18 years of serving Rhode Island most disenfranchised young people, YouthBuild Providence strongly believes it is time to elevated and expand its' services. YouthBuild Providence is proposing to open the YouthBuildPreparatory Academy in partnership with the Providence and Central Falls School Districts. This is not a Charter school, YB Prep will be a cooperative service program provided under RI education law. In order to accomplish this goal, YouthBuild has decide to pursue a legislative approach that will enable the program to become a diploma granting entity in collaboration with said districts. Many thanks to those of you who have supported this work. We are now in advocacy mode as we being strong community support. How can you help? Spread the word and sign our petition to be deliver to the leadership at the Rhode Island Senate and House of Representatives as well as the Governor.
