Since 2000, the Clinical Competency Based High School Diploma Program (or C-BASE) has been provided by AFY as an alternative education program through the Waipahu Community School for Adults. It offers students who have found learning in a traditional classroom difficult and/or have dropped out an opportunity to obtain a high school diploma. Dates will vary.
In the first phase, students are required to complete five books and testing in the classroom: Community Resources, Consumer Economics, Occupational Knowledge, Government & Law, and Heath. In the second phase, students must complete one of the following: 100 hours and 3 consecutive months of work hours, attend post-secondary educational training, obtain or possess a marketable skill, or demonstrate home manage skills. High school diplomas will be distributed upon completion of the two phases.
AFY’s therapeutic approach, the Redirectional Therapy, is a special component to our C-BASE class. It enhances the traditional C-BASE program by allowing students to experience our group counseling methods while working towards obtaining a high school diploma.
“If Adult Friends wasn’t here for me now, I’d be one high school dropout, doing drugs, and anything my gang would do, I’d probably be very violent on the streets.”
“My younger brother, when he graduated from this school last year after dropping out of high school, he motivated me. I told myself if he can make it, I can make it, too.”
