The Maya Angelou Young Adult Learning Center (YALC) provides year-round GED preparation and workforce development for young people ages 17 and up.
At the YALC, we are committed to providing a quality education that will foster life-long learning for our students. We strive to provide a safe, structured learning environment that is conducive to individual student needs and is specially tailored to young adults who have made the conscious decision to return to school after being away for quite some time.
Through education at our school, students will be active participants in their community, as well as develop skills that will prepare them for the workforce and empower them to pursue career and post-secondary pathways of their choice.
