TUNE IN TO YES9 was an amazing success that rose close to $80,000 to maintain and improve YES’ essential services. YES was created in 1995 as a non-profit organization to stem the flow of young people out of Quebec. It has expanded its mission to help over 46,000 Quebecers during economic uncertainty through its programs and services for job seekers up to age 35 and entrepreneurs and artists of any age.
In 2016 YES assisted 4,182 individuals and provided more than 20,000 services.
Throughout the year, YES has provided individual career counseling, business coaching, day and evening workshops, mentoring, conferences, and networking opportunities.
In addition to a stellar in-house staff, YES relies on its network of partners from the business, non-profit, media, academic and corporate communities to deliver services, act as mentors, and provide strategic direction.
