About Youth Ethics in Service (YES)
SEE was the recipient of Learn & Serve grant funds for nine years and served as a Connecticut service-learning facilitator with those funds. The Youth Ethics in Service (YES) program was developed with the experience of working with more than 6,000 participants who completed over 165,000 hours of service-learning. Most of the YES projects served communities in Connecticut and third-party evaluation noted that students reported positive personal impact after completing YES activities. In addition, if the participants had been paid at Connecticut's minimum wage rate, YES would have generated more than $1.2 million in service. Projects included service to other students, schools and their community, the environment and outreach to senior citizens.
