History and Purpose
The Youth Exploring Science program established its Parent Advisory Board in November of 2006. This program provided parents of YES teens with an opportunity to play an active role in the future goals and objectives of the YES program. We continue to stand by that commitment with the revamped parents board, YES Parents as Partners. YES Parents as Partners provides parents with a forum where ideas, questions, concerns, and resources are exchanged. The dual partnership between parents and the YES Program will ensure present and future success for our teens and the communities they serve.
In effort to provide your teen with the best experience we have to offer, we are inviting you to participate in a parent advisory board, YES Parents as Partners. YES Parents as Partners will allow parents, guardian, and members of the YES staff to meet on a month to month basis, and will provide the following opportunities:
- Create a strong working relationship between YES staff and YES parents/guardians
- Provide parents/guardians with a forum for an exchange of ideas, concerns, questions, answers, and resources
- Ensure the overall success of the YES program and its participants
