About Our Program

Our program uses empowerment seminars for youth, parents and influential adults along with a one year mentorship program and/or life coaching to help individuals succeed in life.  Our target audience for the workshops and mentoring are individuals or families who need the encouragement to overcoming life’s’ obstacles. 

Through the use of workshops, seminars and being paired with our mentorship program, the mission of   Y-E-S I CAN is the pursuit of the following principles:

  • Commitment: Y-E-S I CAN want to inspire pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills, and instill a sense of hope in the future.

  • Possibility: Y-E-S I CAN wants to expand the perspective of young people to make them aware of life's possibilities.
  • Support: An individual is dramatically influenced by their support system. Y-E-S I CAN wants to surround young people in a caring, inclusive learning environment.

 Y-E-S I CAN's Vision Statement: To improve the learning and the lives of young people through community partnerships.


Y-E-S I CAN's Mission Statement: Helping families and individuals overcome their life’s obstacles and to rise to their full potential in life.

All seminars at our disposal will be available to those incarcerated, to empower them to take steps in changing their lives and draft a plan to succeed once they have been released.
