Youth Enrichment Series (Y.E.S.) Program 

The Youth Enrichment Series (Y.E.S.) Program was established to cultivate the talents of youth in New York City. In addition to academic studies and extracurricular activities, fostering personal growth is equally, if not more, important for young individuals to build a solid foundation for their adult lives.

The program features:

  • Gain real-world experience through team involvement, working towards a common goal, fostering personal development in young adulthood.
  • Learn practical skills, such as communication, persuasion, presentation, and more, to enhance self-confidence and improve expression skills.
  • Participate in activities such as hosting group games, preparing group dinners, and more to increase levels of responsibility.
  • Engage in workshops covering planning, execution, and risk assessment for events to develop leadership skills.
  • Volunteer with other organizations in New York City to earn community service credits for college applications and discover interests.

To celebrate the culmination of the year-round program, participants will not only be recognized for the skills they’ve developed but also awarded the Presidential Volunteer Service Award, signed and recognized by the President of the United States.
