In order to award valid diplomas, YCSC must be accredited by WASC and has to renew its full accreditation every 6 years.In October of 2016, YCSC appointed Nadia Despenza and Emily Suttmeier dos Santos to be our WASC Co-Coordinators.
Students worked on developing leadership skills and developing mindfulness skills while exploring trails, an inactive volcano and learning about the area the California Paiute tribes call home. This year, the Audubon Center has partnered with Youth Build Charter School of California to provide us with education on native plants through hands on projects, information about the ecosystem with a focus on Los Angeles and fun exploring the hiking trails.
To kick off 2017, students from our sites at CÁLO YB and CRCD Academy @ All People’s Youth Build came to explore nature in the city at the Audubon Center at Debs Park in Northeast L. Through our Youth Build Charter-Audubon partnership we will be also bringing special programming opportunities to students. You can help by letting us know how you are incorporating ideas and actions in creating a great environment for young people at your site!
