Young Adult Learn to Earn
The purpose of the Young Adult Learn to Earn (YALE) program is to foster independent living and employment skills in students, enabling them to be self-advocating, self-supporting, and contributing members of a competitive global economy.
Currently, the YALE program consists of one house on campus, House 5 for young ladies, and a separate dormitory for young men. We also have apartments for those not ready to move into the houses yet still participate in independent life skills learning. Staff monitors students as they learn to cook, clean and become more independent and prepare for life outside of NCSD.
