How We Help

The state of Georgia spends $91,000 a year to incarcerate one youth. YES utilizes that same number of dollars to help 20 youth obtain a GED, enroll at post-secondary institutions and/or enter the work force through YES’ 3-6- 9 WorkReady Program Initiative.

Providing The Right Tools

When it comes to furthering the education of the youth, textbooks, computers, and other media peripherals are a necessary part of the learning process.
