We be buzzing like bees on a mission.

YES! Kick-Off Conference was awesome.  We’ve been buzzing in the news for the past week.  If you haven’t had the opportunity yet to check out what YES! youth have accomplished.  Check out the BUZZ section of our website to read, watch, and comment on articles written about YES!

What’s most powerful is that almost all of the articles feature the voices, words, and thoughts of our YES! leaders.  We forced the reporters to talk to the youth when they repeatedly asked to speak with a “diversity expert.”  We said, the youth are our experts, so talk to them.  And, they did!

Make sure to leave some comments about what you think.
