Young Adult Borough Center

Thomas Jefferson Campus

400 Pennsylvania Avenue

Brooklyn, NY 11207



The Young Adult Borough Center (YABC) at Jefferson Campus is an evening educational/youth development program that provides over-aged, under-credited New York City high school students an alternative pathway to graduation. Students enrolled in YABC also include young adults who chose to leave daytime classes due to circumstances such as employment or adult responsibilities. YABC offers students an opportunity to participate in non-traditional, educational programming geared toward helping them prepare for a high school diploma and making critical career choices (i.e. college, employment or vocational training). This unique program combines academic classroom instruction, tutoring, career exploration, case management, work readiness training, and subsidized internships. Students attend classes Monday through Thursday, from 3:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. (at our site Saturday 9AM-Noon).
