Description:

Nowhere are we taught to manage our negative emotions and stress - not at school, nor at home. YES! for Schools takes on this challenge!

In 2009 the IAHV YES! for Schools Program began in Silicon Valley working with classrooms of at-risk students in the East Side Union High School District. The students face innumerable challenges of poverty, gangs, violence, drugs, academic and social pressure.

The Principals decided to improve the school climate by offering the YES! program to the entire school, one freshman class at a time. Nearly 10,000 students have graduated from YES! for Schools funded entirely by the generosity of individuals and grants supporting the cause.

The YES! core competency is a powerful social emotional learning curriculum which includes practical life skills to manage stress and emotions. When students learn how to manage their stress in a healthy way, they exhibit greater confidence and motivation to succeed in school and make healthy choices when faced with life's challenges. UCLA Research on YES! for Schools reports that YES! promotes mental health in youth by decreasing impulsivity, potentially protecting them from harmful coping behaviors (alcohol, drugs, violence, depression, etc.)
