About Us

The Young Adult Borough Center (YABC) at Herbert H. Lehman HS is an evening academic program which is in session Monday through Thursday from 4:00 pm – 9:00 pm. YABC at Lehman HS is designed specifically to meet the needs of high school students who might be considering dropping out because they are behind or because they have adult responsibilities that make attending school in the daytime difficult. Eligible students are at least 17.5 years old, have been in school for four or more years, and have 17 or more credits. In partnership with East Side House a community-based organization, students are given the opportunity to get placed in paid internships. Through the CBO, students participate in workshops and get support that helps them prepare for college, employment, healthy relationships, and most importantly, life after graduation. Students graduate with a diploma from their home school after they have earned all of their required credits and passed all of the required Regents exams while attending YABC @ Lehman HS.
