              In an effort to give at-risk youth a second chance, LearningWorks in Portland Maine, offers the Youth Building Alternatives (YBA) program. YBA provides young people, ages 16 to 24, with the opportunity to work toward their GED and acquire vocational skills. YBA Counselor, Bear Shea, emphasizes: “So many of our students have shame and guilt and all these things built up around school, that are really intense emotions. Working as a staff to create that safe environment is really important.” By redirecting and channeling a student’s frustration, anger or apathy through active learning, students try to progress beyond the situations that have led them to YBA in the first place.
