Green Zone Environmental Program (GZEP)
Every summer, GZEP partners with the Marion Barry Summer Youth Employment Program to provide over 300 youth and young adults, ages 14 to 24, with an opportunity to learn about energy and environmental issues, complete community-based environmental work projects such as rain gardens and storm drain markers, and prepare for careers. Being a GZEP staff member is a great opportunity to work with District youth and gain valuable leadership experience.
Maya Angelou Young Adult Learning Center
The Maya Angelou Young Adult Learning Center (YALC) provides year-round GED preparation and workforce development for young people ages 17 and up.
At the YALC, we are committed to providing a quality education that will foster life-long learning for our students. We strive to provide a safe, structured learning environment that is conducive to individual student needs and is specially tailored to young adults who have made the conscious decision to return to school after being away for quite some time.
