YESS (Youth Empowerment and Support Services) provides essential support services to Edmonton youth in crisis or otherwise in need. They offer programs (employment, life skills, or hobbies), basic needs assistance (shelter, food) and mental health supports. Through services offered at YESS youth are able to build a more positive situation for themselves and regain a sense of normalcy despite the situation that brought them to the organization in the first place.
I've been passionate about tabletop gaming since I first starting playing Dungeons & Dragons at age 10. That passion quickly spread to games of all kinds, and I love board games every bit as much as role-playing games. I love sharing my hobby with others, but I especially love being able to put my hobby to good use and support a worthy cause like YESS. They do so much good here in Edmonton, and I'm excited by the chance to support them doing something I love!
I hope you'll take a moment to help YESS by helping me reach my goal!
