Y.E.S ( National Youth Empowerment & Solutions)
This conference is structured to unite teens with national leaders to create solutions for issues that plague them. Y.E.S is led by a distinguished collection of college & high school students. The 2 day YES conference drew more than 1,500 students per day. The students were challenged to develop solutions based upon existing concerns. This was accomplished by a structured panel discussion each morning and afternoon that taught the youth how to create solutions. The youth then broke into groups with a specific task to create a solution based upon a topic.
