YES Classes, which take place every spring and fall semester have been an integral part of the YES mentoring program. In YES classes the youth learn valuable financial and life skills such as budgeting, goal setting, job readiness, credit cards and how not to use them, how to file taxes etc. Many former YES youth have said that they only know how to "adult" because of these classes!
With COVID19 the YES team has had to cancel the classes, however we have transformed our Mission Possible Activities, which used to supplement the classes, to know be fun engaging activities the mentors and mentees can do together that will teach them all the lessons once learned in class. Not only will they gain knowledge but it also helps build the mentors and mentee's relationship!
BUT WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOUR HELP!
Help us make the transition by donating materials for our Mission Possible Kits that we will distribute to our mentors. Provide incentives (gift cards) to encourage the youth and let them know they are doing a great job!
TOGETHER WE CAN HELP OUR YOUTH LEARN VALUABLE LIFE SKILLS TO HELP IN THEIR TRANSITION TO ADULTHOOD!
