About

A little bit about us…

Youth Encouragement Services (YES) operates two youth centers that offer educational and recreational programs as alternatives for kids ages 6-18 during after school hours, weekends and summer break.  The programs offered by YES effectively keep children living in the inner city off the street, giving them a safe place to go where they can engage in social, educational and cultural activities.
