In light of the Alberta Health Services (AHS) advisory on March 12, 2020, YESS Management, working with our Board of Directors, has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 YESS Gala for Youth: Metamorphosis, which was to take place at the Edmonton Convention Center on Friday, April 17, 2020.

This decision was made the immense consideration on our part, but it is the health and safety of our youth, our community partners and sponsors, and our staff that is of the utmost importance. “While we are sad to cancel our favourite event, we stand confident in knowing we are doing the right things in limiting transmission,” says Margo Long, President & CEO. “Ultimately, we are responsible for the care of some of our community’s most vulnerable, and that takes priority. We are so grateful for our sponsors, partners, staff, and volunteers for all of the work they have put into this even (which was going to be EPIC) and into building awareness and raising funds for YESS. We love you all and we are in this with you.” If you would like to support YESS, please consider making a donation on our website at
