Youth Transformation Services® (YTS) NFP
Providing professional development that fosters social emotional learning (SEL) skills, to reduce youth violence through game-based learning.
In August of 2007, my community was shaken to its core when my youngest son (19 years old) experienced a bipolar blackout that resulted in him violently attacking me (Charisse). Many families are paralyzed by their children’s concerning behaviors, which often result in youth violence.
Youth will demonstrate the value of making positive lifestyle choices.
YTS empowers youth to make positive lifestyle choices by providing skills and strategies to improve interpersonal communication and foster violence prevention planning that sustains personal, social, and academic success.
YTS’ core values are based on SEL competencies to provide skills necessary for success.
Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go,
they merely determine where you start.
