Say “yes” to YES

The Youth Empowerment Series (YES) is looking for Georgia high school students to join YES for the 2019 – 2020 school year! YES is a fun program that works with high school students who are passionate about helping to create stronger families for a stronger Georgia. During the school year, DHS YES participants will attend a one-weekend meetup, from Saturday morning overnight until Sunday afternoon, during which they will expand their leadership skills through meaningful conversations and workshops. Participants will hear from state leadership and community partners, examine critical issues that face Georgia youth, and participate in community service.

YES values teen-youth input on the services the Department of Human Services provides to Georgia families. Our program encourages youth to tap into the importance of their opinion and participation.

The application for YES is still open. Apply now!
