Youth Empowerment Services, Inc, (Y.E.S.) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has been an integral part of Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester Counties (aka the tri-county) in South Carolina . Y.E.S. was founded by Roslin J. Fields, M.Ed., an accomplished educator who retired after 28 years in the public schools system to open the Y.E.S. Community Center. She continues to serve full- time as its executive director.
Since its inception in 1999, Y.E.S. has served over 4,000 youths through mentoring programs, college prep activities, workshops and various community events, with the help of over 300 faithful volunteers.
Evaluations reveal that 85% of our participants successfully complete our programs.
Over 98 % of girls do not become pregnant while in our programs, and self-reporting evaluations reveal that they understand, embrace and practice the abstinence lifestyle upon program completion.
Parents report a positive change in behavior of youths who participate in our programs.
Y.E.S. collaborates with schools, churches, local, state and federal agencies, businesses and community organizations to carry out our mission.
Y.E.S. is supported through public and private funding.
