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

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.

Project Y.E.S! has proudly served over 17,000 children and youth through 49 states and 4 US territories.  We look forward to working with more of the tremendous military youth serving their country in their own special ways!
