For nearly 20 years, YouthBuild Philadelphia Charter School has worked to help young people without high school degrees refocus and rebuild their lives. YouthBuild Charter offers a one-year intensive program emphasizing academics, community service and job skills — and awards graduates with diplomas and trade certifications.

The Philadelphia school is one of 25 nonprofit organizations across the country competing to share up to $2 million in funding through the American Giving Awards, which will air on NBC Saturday, Dec. 8 at 8 p.m. The awards ceremony will be hosted by "The Soup's" Joel McHale, and feature appearances by Glenn Close, Colbie Callait, Gary Sinese and other stars.

Please cast your vote on Facebook before Dec. 4 for YouthBuild Philadelphia Charter School, and help them get the funding they need to continue changing lives.
