The Youth Empowerment and Success (YES) program is aimed at improving youths’ self-esteem and enhancing their ability to make responsible decisions through training, mentoring and financial support. Our program strives to provide each YES youth with skills and resources they will need to be healthy, financially responsible, productive adults.
The YES Mentor Program will provide a volunteer mentor (click here to learn more about Becoming A Mentor) for each YES program participant for one year, with the opportunity for the relationship to continue on its own.
The youth and their mentors will meet in small groups to cover the financial literacy curriculum modules and other topics regarding preparation for adult living. Topics include: Goal Setting, Needs vs. Want, Monitoring Spending, Banking, Budgeting, Spending Plans and much more!
Partnerships for Children offers 2 YES Program Cycles per year; one in the Fall and one in the Spring.
Alumni of the YES Mentor Program are eligible to earn additional stipends by attending YES Advanced Classes as well as apply for a YES Internship position with Partnerships for Children.
