Preparing Today's Youth for Tomorrow's World.
Every youth, no matter their struggles or circumstances deserve experiences that will prepare them for a brighter future.
YES provides age-based researched programs while providing the elements needed to meet the diverse, complex needs of youth, particularly those youth from low-income and under-resourced communities.
At YES, we focus on developing the "Whole Child." Our success is built on how many lives we change. Seeing the obstacle our youth are facing in today's society and how these obstacles on their level of success, our mentoring relationships and age-based researched programming equips our youth how to become leaders, take risk, have a deeper self- expression and self-awareness of themselves.
WE TAKE OUR MISSION TO HEART
As YES is dedicated to REACH our youth, we provide a safe-haven afterschool program where they are educated on their own values and unique attributes that makes them Who They Are.
We take our mission to heart and are committed to empowering, educating, and promoting growth and social awareness to youth and teens through enrichment programs. And with the involvement of parents and our researched programs, our youth will discover the world themselves and the possibilities that await them.
Our purpose is to serve our community by providing positive and safe after school programs, and a summer program that will provide a platform for educational, recreational, and positive social programs for youth and teens to learn and grow.
