Options for Youth offers a variety of extra-curricular activities that are open to all students. It is our goal to provide students with a well-rounded educational experience and we encourage students to get more involved. In addition, Options for Youth partners with other non-profit entities to provide college preparation and outdoor experiences.
Activities may vary by charter and learning center.
This is where students get to know one another through various community service projects and other teambuilding events.

The goal is for each and every student to graduate high school. Students may choose to return to their traditional district schools for graduation or to graduate at the Options for Youth ceremonies which are held in May/June and, in some Charters, in December/January as well.
