Youth Enrichment Services (YES)

The YES program gives local pre-teens and adolescents who are struggling with alcohol, drugs, or other dangerous behaviors the chance to make long term change.

Through a combination of individual, family, and group counseling, teens learn the coping skills necessary to manage peer pressure, anxiety, depression and other challenges without resorting to unhealthy behavior.

For more than 10 years, Tykes & Teens has been offering troubled teens a scientifically based and proven program to help them end destructive behaviors and turn their lives around.
