Support your community during this time of need.
Every day, our committed staff are working to support the community we serve. Our Board of Directors and dedicated staff are working hard to ensure that YES Institute continues to provide our ground-breaking education and training during the coronavirus crisis.
Mission: To prevent suicide and ensure the healthy development of all youth through powerful communication and education on gender and orientation.
Now more than ever the need for our work is vital. Youth and adults with diverse experiences of gender & orientation are facing increased mental health challenges, homelessness, and lack of access to medical care. Many youth and young people have found themselves in unsupportive households during this time and aren't able to access their usual affirming spaces like school, or community centers.
YES Institute has not only moved all of our education and support online but has also implemented a targeted response for one of our most vulnerable populations by facilitating free online sessions for youth, families, and community providers.
