What We Do

YES positive youth development programs promote resiliency. We aim to increase protective factors in students’ lives to equip them to say, “YES!” to their dreams and goals, and “no” to risk behaviors.

Our Programs

Motivational Experiences

Also known as assemblies, these programs provide high-impact and purposeful messaging. Each speaker has their own powerful story, reaching students from all walks of life.

Wellness Education

These programs are research-based, putting students on a path toward optimal health. Speakers address critical topics in today’s youth culture through informative and motivational content.

Peer-to-Peer Mentoring

This program is an entirely unique approach from any other mentoring structure found in today’s schools. It’s student led, meaning high school upperclassmen mentor at-risk freshmen.



Support Students

Over 5.2 million students, parents and educators have been impacted through our resourced experiences! Whether you make a one-time gift, or become a monthly donor, your contribution of any size will bring hope and connection to the students we serve, their parents and educators. Thank you for your support!
