Works...with the Marketplace
Volunteers and YES staff use state-of the-art
computers, audio and video equipment to teach teens technical skills
and expose them to the creative process. Teens also learn the basics
of business, such as how to sell products and ideas. This gives
teens experience they can use in any career. Best of all, creating
and selling their own products rewards teens with something that's
priceless: pride in their work and in themselves.
Teens learn more than technical skills using YES
digital sound mixing boards, digital video cameras, and computer
graphics and postproduction equipment. They also gain life lessons
in self-confidence, open communication and respect for others. Not
only do teens learn to set and reach goals at YES, but they also
share the results of their work with family, friends and the community
and around the world. YES teaches teens how teamwork, faith and
hard work can make their dreams become a reality.
What teen wouldn't want their own music on a CD
they made? Making music, videos and other products at YES gives
teens positive outlets to express their fears, hopes and dreams.
