Monroe County Youth Employment Services, Inc. (YES) recently asked me to participate in a program called "The Road I took to Leadership." This program is intended to show students that success in life does not always follow a traditional path and that many careers are attainable if an individual has the appropriate grit, drive and work ethic. I was honored to share my personal journey and continue to support this wonderful organization.

Youth Empowerment Services is a 501 (c) (3) organization that works with Monroe County youth ages 14-24 to offer career guidance and assistance through workshops, seminars, job shadowing, mentorships and work experience. Our mission is to help our youth determine the career goal for their future, establish their future path, and help them in the pursuit of their career. We offer a 9-month program called Project Success that meets twice a month for career guidance, leadership, employability, resume writing, mock interview and teambuilding seminars. The program will culminate in a mentorship/job shadowing opportunity, and eligible participants will be enrolled for our Summer Work Experience Program. SYEP is for academically or economically disadvantaged youth to gain work experience for 6 weeks in the summer, learning employability skills firsthand while they earn minimum wage for some summer or back-to-school spending money. Eligibility is required for SYEP. Applications for both Project Success and Summer Work Experience Program are available at the PA CareerLink in Tannersville.
