About Our Schools
We work with Title I high schools and programs to provide students with applicable and realistic skills that prepare them for the world.
Content: Students will participate in YBA’s comprehensive curriculum addressing the following 4 modules:
Professional Etiquette, Networking, Public Speaking, Professionalism, Time Management
Cover Letter, Resume writing, Mock Interviews, Internship/Job Search
Budgeting, Saving, Investing, Interest Rates & Loans
Shark Tank, Entrepreneurship & Real Estate
Each classroom hears from an industry specific guest speaker. We are always looking for individuals in the community looking to speak! The benefits of the program to our students are:
YBA exposes students to a variety of careers and professionals! My students are given the opportunity to interact on a personal level with entrepreneurs to explore and find their own passions
–Valerie Felix, YBA Teacher
Companies and small businesses can host a field trip for our students! Field trips are 3 hours long, include an office/business tour, a facilitated activity specific to your industry, and a Q&A. This is an opportunity for students to go off site to see where the real magic happens, meet your staff and leadership teams and imagine themselves in your shoes.
“The field trips that are part of the program bring to life the mission of YBA in educating students about various industries. It is a fantastic way for local businesses to positively impact our communities and our more importantly, our youth.
Being able to offer field trips to our local schools has been such an amazing experience for my bank. Everyone participates….it brings all of our departments together…all levels of management up to our executive team play a part. It is something my bank looks forward to, and we look forward to many, many more field trips!”
