Learning to Work

CAMBA’s Learning to Work (LTW) program helps to re-engage students who have dropped out or fallen behind in credits to graduate high school. LTW programs are offered at ten transfer high schools and two Young Adult Borough Centers (YABC). Transfer high schools are small, full-time high schools designed to motivate students who have fallen behind in credits.YABCs offer evening academic programs for high school students who wish to gain additional credits at night while attending school during the day and those who cannot attend school during the day.
CAMBA provides a wide range of diverse programming, including academic and student support, career and educational development, college advising and preparation, work preparation, skills development, alumni services, and paid internships.

The NYC Department of Education funds the program.

Eligibility: Overage/under-credited students who have attended a NYC High School, have never attended High School or are new to the country, and are at least 15 years old. Must provide a copy of immunization records and parent/ guardian must be present for student enrollment. Students must complete an application and an interview for acceptance.
