Testimonials

Since 1999, Youth Empowerment Services (Y.E.S.) has been serving youths in the Tri-county who are most disenfranchised by empowering them to avoid at-risk behaviors such as violence, drugs, dropping out of school and teen pregnancy. We can’t afford to stop now as the testimonies below say so.

“My (adult) daughter is still a virgin today, and she attributes this to having gone through your abstinence program.”
