OUR STORY

WHO WE ARE

Ahead of its time and punching above its weight, Youth Enrichment Services (YES) formed in 1994 to create hope out of hopelessness, paint a bright future out of uncertainty and give young people from inner-city and urban communities a portrait of themselves as successful, empowered, and confident leaders. With YES’ mentorship, our young people go on to become leaders among their peers, and within their schools, homes, and communities.  MORE  »

OUR WORK

WHAT WE DO

The heart of YES is a spirit of mentorship that places students at its center. YES enables peer mentors to guide project curriculum, program focus, and youth activities. YES taps into students’ most valuable connection: each other. By using students to lead, guide, influence, and motivate each other, YES has created a formula for success that is  a catalyst for community growth, economic prosperity, and conscious leadership. YES' model has been vetted and validated and has thrived for the past two decades. This framework informs our two core programs: Mentoring Partnerships and Diversion 2000.

          I was in need of direction and motivation, and members of YES were able to provide that for me. I was getting ready to graduate high school and felt very lost.
