For over 15 years, Project YES has served Boulder County youth, ages 5-18, with youth development programming, community events, and volunteer opportunities that nurture and develop integrity, character, and leadership. By using art-based projects as a vehicle for social change, Project YES engages youth in after school programming, creating community networks, and designing service projects that address community needs. Project YES works with a variety of local non-profits organizations and schools to plan community events, marches, and rallies where local youth can express themselves and their vision of social equality.
Through such programs, Project YES youth experience an increased sense of self-efficacy, improved positive decision making skills, and practice as role models for their peers, while developing their capacity to create change.
Students express themselves, and have fun, in the 2010 Sanchez Service Learning Partnership Program.
To share best practices, exchange information, and advance common goals, Project YES actively collaborates with community partners, local universities, and the Boulder Valley School District. We actively engage a wide network of volunteers and parents to further or mission.
