Description:

Youth Emergency Services (YES) is an organization that provides transitional housing, on-site medical care, and many other resources for young people in Philadelphia who are housing insecure. Residents live at YES (located in Spring Garden) for a few weeks to months until they are able to move on to more stable housing. JeffYES's mission is to establish positive relationships with the residents of YES. Each week, students in JeffYES travel to 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.
