The Youth Services Education Program helps youth 16 to 24 years of age through Novanet and Individualized Tutoring with the ultimate goal to obtain their Hawaii Adult Community School Diploma using the Competency-Based Community School Diploma Program (C-Base) developed by the Department of Education.
The tutoring programs offers a custom learning experience tailored to assist students with increasing academic goals to enter the C-Base program.
The C-Base program consists of two phases:
Phase I involves the successful completion of five units:
(1) Health; (2) Government and Law; (3) Consumer Economics; (4) Community Resources, and (5) Occupational Knowledge. Classroom attendance allows students to gain life skills that will enable them to become productive community members and increase their employability.
In Phase II, participants will demonstrate their improved life skills, readiness to accept responsibility, and ability to move forward as “functionally competent” members of their communities through at least one of the following outcomes: (1) acceptance for post-secondary educational training; (2) employment; (3) obtaining or possessing a marketable skill; or (4) demonstration of home or life management skills.
At the end of the program year, students who successfully complete the program receive their community school diploma in a graduation ceremony.
Youth Services Employment Program

It also offers competency-based work readiness skills prior to employment. The program also provides leadership skills training, occupational training, cultural awareness, and on-going individual and group counseling. Using program resources, students are able to explore various employment options before and after receiving their community school diplomas.
