YouthBuild Preparatory Academy

YouthBuild Preparatory Academy, Inc. is reshaping the narrative of Rhode Island’s urban youth, not only by making them integral parts of their communities’ successes but by empowering them to discover the best versions of themselves.

An alternative to traditional secondary education pathways

YouthBuild Preparatory Academy Inc.’s intention is to operate a school – the YouthBuild Preparatory Academy Alternative School or YouthBuild Prep, while open to all, will have focused on boys and young men. We promote social and emotional wellness for each of our students while providing academic support and servicing the unique needs of students from urban core communities. Our model is comprised of academic coursework and applied learning that creates community leaders who successfully transition into post-secondary education careers.

Unique to Our City, Unique to Our Community

Based on YouthBuild USA’s years of experience with underserved students who have struggled in traditional school settings, YouthBuild Prep will offer a non-traditional service model that will defy the norm of Urban Core education.
