Program Overview

What is Y.E.S? The Youth Engaged in Service program (Y.E.S.) is a volunteer program for young people between the ages of 12-18. Y.E.S. provides teens the opportunity to become contributing members of the community. Y.E.S. volunteers provide community service to the people of West Seneca through direct interaction with children, senior citizens, and the emotionally and physically challenged. Y.E.S. serves as a support group to many agencies and organizations. Y.E.S. offers an abundance of helpful and worthwhile activities that benefit many individuals in the community.
