The Spring semester has flown past and volunteers and directors alike are evaluating how their programs have fared.

There is always the desire to provide the best possible service for the program participants and the most fulfilling experience for the volunteers providing that service. Commmunity partners, service recipients, volunteers and directors are being asked to carefully weigh the process followed and the end results of all these efforts. We hope everyone involved comes away with positive feelings about their exposure to Youth Educational Services.


Mission Statement

The mission of YES is to support student-initiated, student-led volunteer programs that serve local community needs. By creating a collaborative, inclusive and safe environment, students are encouraged to become active creators of their own learning through exploring new ideas, developing leadership, connecting deeply with peers and those they serve, and building meaning through reflection.
