Our Programs

The York College Learning Center offers foundational education and training, as well as advisement and referral services, that expand opportunities for marginalized adults to achieve increased independence, realize life goals, and become active in civic and workplace responsibilities as individuals, parents, and members of the broader community.

Foundational Education and Training

The Learning Center offers instruction in Adult Basic Education (ABE), English as a Second Language (ESL), English Language and Personal Care Aide (PCA)/Home Health Aide Instruction (HHA), and High School Equivalency (HSE) preparation.

The Learning Center is a designated Literacy Zone (Literacy for Life) and coordinates with local partners in providing referrals for students and community members to an array of lifelong services, including housing, immigration, legal concerns, government-sponsored social services, and more. Educational case management and academic advisement are offered by our multi-lingual staff, in addition to career counseling, job training referrals, and pre-college counseling. 

The Learning Center offers adults and older youth (aged 19 and older) the opportunity to continue their education by improving their language, literacy, math, and technology skills, attain a High School Equivalency Diploma, and participate in college and career readiness sessions.
