About Our Charity
YES is the largest and most experienced youth employment counseling centre in Canada. YES has an exemplary reputation for innovative and successful programs and services for young people with barriers to employment such as homelessness, a lack of formal education, a criminal record and drug abuse.
Founded by The Rotary Club of Toronto in 1968, Youth Employment Services YES is Canada’s very first youth employment organization. Internationally recognized as a Centre of Excellence in Youth Employment, YES leads the sector by providing programs designed to address the most critical issue facing today’s youth- unemployment.
YES was the first to both recognize and address that being out of work is often the result of factors beyond the control of our most vulnerable and disadvantaged youth. Low self-esteem, a mental or physical disability or simply being in need of bus fare to get to a job interview can all have a tremendous effect on youth employment.YES has supoorted more than 110,000 youth since its inception in 1968.
What People Are Saying
"Before YES I was unsure about my life decisions because of my criminal history. I was feeling discouraged and really stressed out. Through participating in programs at YES, I secured a job. I am proud of what I have achieved so far, I never thought I could do it. "
— John – Job Camp participant
"My team and I learned great business, PR, and branding fundamentals that have set our start-up, AEON Attire, on the right track. Since our time in the program, we went from 2 to 35 retail stores and increased our product portfolio. Thank you, YES, for making this possible."
— AEON Attire
"I was very depressed, struggling with bi-polar disorder and didn’t feel any purpose in life or that life was worth living. Participating at YES me realize that I do have potential and value, not only as an employee but also as a person. Thank you for creating such a fun, and positive environment! "
