YFC values education as an integral part of achieving its mission. From the time we opened the City Life Center, our goal was to expand our programming to include a charter high school that offers quality educational opportunities tailored to the urban population. This goal became reality in 2014 when the Franklinton Preparatory Academy opened on floors two and three of our expanded City Life Center. FPA teaches excellence in education while emphasizing economic literacy and vocational training.
The renovation also allows YFC to expand upon our existing programs in areas of job skills training, arts, and fitness. Also, there are dedicated space for study areas, as well as meeting spaces for small and large groups, and a safe hang out place for Franklinton teens. These spaces add additional activities and increase the volume of teens involved in our many programs.
