The Youth Excellence Society

Vancouver Island based leadership program serving British Columbia teens through summer camps, school workshops and online courses.

For over 45 years, the YES has been providing a unique learning experience for over 15,000 youth across BC. The YES is a charitable organization that has no religious affiliation and is supported through the province's co-operative and credit union movement.

We believe our programming not only changes the lives of our participants,

but provides them with the tools and skills to create positive change

in their family, school, and community.

The YES was the best thing that has happened to my daughter and I have no doubt that the skills she has learned there will continue to help foster her into a pretty terrific human being for a long time to come.
