25 Years of Education, Prevention & Action for Adolescent Health
Our Youth Empowerment Summit (YES!) connects young people to vital information they need in their everyday lives. YES! attracts hundreds of students throughout the state and features teens and young adults who have remarkable experiences to share. YES! provides a variety of youth-informed workshops presented by experts and community leaders.

Students can join us virtually on Saturday, November 14, 12:00 – 1:30 for workshops focusing on:

  • Self-Awareness: healthy relationships, emotional wellness
  • Knowledge: educational opportunities, college prep, financial literacy 
  • Image: social media, personal development 
  • NOW: racial and social justice, civic participation, rising suicide rates among youth
 
When young people are given the right information, have consistent support from their families and community, and have the opportunity to express themselves — without judgment — they are empowered. YES! provides a platform and opportunities designed for youth by youth, including information and workshops on how to reach their goals. Parents are welcome to attend, too!  
Upcoming Virtual Events

Wed. Oct. 21 at 6:00 PM | October is Let’s Talk Month!
Believe it or not, teens want to hear from their parents about love, sex, and relationships. Join us for a live family-friendly Q&A with youth and parents to learn more about starting age-appropriate conversations early. Studies show that open and honest communication with young people leads to smarter decisions in dating and relationships throughout life. There's a chance to win a $50 VISA gift card at the end of the webinar, so make sure to stick around to see if you’re the lucky winner. 
 
Wed. Oct. 28 at 6:00 PM | GCAPP & Advocates for Youth Present:
Virtual Tips & Tricks for Teaching Sex Ed
