Youth Connection Charter School (YCCS) provides high-performing high school options in 19 campuses across Chicago. YCCS serves youth ages 16 to 21, providing a better chance in contrast to traditional school environments where our students did not succeed or were failed by the system. Youth Connection Charter School advocates, develops and provides world-class education to students at-risk and high school dropouts in collaboration with the alternative high school community. We do this by meeting the individual needs of students through programs committed to academic excellence, human development, cultural enrichment, social equity, and the recruiting of caring and engaged professionals.
Teachers hold primary responsibility for the implementation and development of YCCS curriculum and the success of its students. If you are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of these students who have been under-served and/or disconnected from traditional education please consider applying. Bachelor’s degree and a Professional Educator’s license with Secondary endorsement is required.
YCCS offers a comprehensive benefits package which includes medical, dental, vision, company paid life and disability insurance, a 403B plan and several paid holidays.
