Since its incorporation in 2006, YEZ has helped over 400 at-risk youth. Last year YEZ collaborated with local businesses to create 47 new jobs for youth participants. Of the 60 children and youth who participated in our Job Readiness Training half of them increased their skills by at least 20 percent (based on pre- and post-tests). The success of the Job Readiness Training program is illustrated by our success stories.
