Youth as a Solution, Not as a Problem

VISION

 

YES strives for a world in which we stop treating young people as empty vessels into which we pour our wisdom and instead we treat all (troubled and prepared) young people as the most promising resource available to us in developing a new societal structure and meeting the high service needs of our communities; a world in which all young people are provided at-least one practical changemaking experience; a world in which all young people are viewed as equal partners in collective efforts to improve civic life, rather than consumers, constituents or foot soldiers for adult-supervised programs.

 

MISSION

 

We exist to open doors for Youth-led Changemaking everywhere.We build a world where every young person is provided an opportunity to discover the Changemaker within him-her.
