Youth Opportunity Fund Partnership

Community stakeholders gathered at YBN to learn about the proposed LEAD Charter School that will serve as an additional option for comprehensively preparing Newark youth for college and careers.

The mission of LEAD Charter School is to help students ages 16-20 in grades 9-12 master the essential skills crucial for success in postsecondary education, career, and community leadership within a global society. LEAD Charter School has been approved by the New Jersey Department of Education to move to Phase II of the charter school application process.
