Our Youth Empowerment Seminar Academy is our primary program. 10-30 youth ages 13-17 are selected from a pool of applicants to attend a 3-5 day ( 1 weekend and 3 check-up days) intensive character and self-esteem building workshop including physical, mental and social activities. The purpose of YES Academy is to remove “troubled” youth from their usual environment into one that is peaceful and safe and will empower youth to face their internal conflicts, begin the process to overcome them and convert their trauma into a motivational tool to achieve their professional goals. All youth participants will be provided a mentor to serve as their personal resilience coach for the course of 1 year.
