We are proud of every youth we’ve been able to help over the past 35 years. They have dreams of becoming the president of a big company, owning their very own successful small business, giving back to the community, and being great parents.

The hope and resources youth find at YESS can have a huge impact on the future of Edmonton. Support our youth and their potential.
