Just Say YES Youth Equipped to Succeed

Just Say YES Youth Equipped to Succeed The mission of Just Say YES is growing value and vision in youth by combating isolation and imparting hope. In recent years, isolation has become a common theme we have observed among our youth.

Ironically, in a world that seems so highly connected via the internet and social media, the reality is today’s youth feel alone. They feel a personal disconnect from their family, peers, teachers and other adult influences. At Just Say YES, our philosophy is, “A connected student is a protected student.” Since our founding in 2002, we have made it our mission to create life-changing connections w

Our Story

Our Mission: Providing a lens through which youth can visualize and achieve a healthy and successful future.

Our Vision: The nation’s most trusted partner in equipping youth to succeed.

Our Why: To provide students with a bigger “YES” in their lives than the no’s they are facing.

In recent years, isolation has become a common theme we have observed among our youth. Ironically, in a world that seems so highly connected via the internet and social media, the reality is today’s youth feel alone. They feel a personal disconnect from their family, peers, teachers and other adult influences.
