Project Youth Extension Service (Y.E.S!)


The goal of this initiative is to increase the number of students completing internships and entering professional careers in child‐care and youth development programs.

Project Y.E.S! is a national internship program engaging college students in service to meet the needs of military families. Specifically, Project Y.E.S! expands the resources of the Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP) and other youth & teen oriented programs. Our staff interns are provided an opportunity to give back to their communities and country through a year of service. Through our partnership with the General H. Hugh Shelton Leadership Center, our staff Interns are provided first-class youth development educational and facilitation skills. In turn, they travel the nation delivering youth programs to a variety of YRP and other family programs. Project YES! also serves as a career development program. Full year Staff interns are provided dedicated mentors who assist in the exploration and development of their career goals and in the completion of a career broadening learning project. This is all accomplished while meeting the critical needs of communities with high rates of families impacted by deployments and other military related absences.
