The Youth Emergency Services (YES) is transitional housing for teenagers in the midst of housing upheaval. The youths live at YES for a few weeks to a few months until their living situation is sorted out. JeffYES's mission is to establish positive relationships with the youths of YES in order to create rewarding educational experiences for both residents and volunteers. We hope to provide an outlet for creative expression and to foster discussion amongst the residents in order to enliven their time at YES and encourage them to pursue their ambitions.
