Words can not express the awesome experience of the YES team (Blanca). The CYO camp was the best opportunity for my daughter to increase her self esteem and independence. My daughter and I are going through a very dramatic family change. The CYO camp provided the best forum for my daughter to focus on all the positive aspects of life. The camp gave me a new perspective of how I want to live my life and refocus my career in the creative arts forum to help other people to find their purpose. I have a disability which prohibits me from going back into the high stress and unforgiving corporate fashion world. The safe and loving environment radiated in my daughters eyes and her spirit. I was moved to tears when I visited the camp on one Saturday afternoon with three other Moms and my daughter dimples were deeper from her huge SMILE. My daughter Nanette Thompson speaks of the camp daily. She mises her councilors and wishes she could write to them. Nanette expressed how she loved that the councilors were from all parts of the world. Nanette has also ben inspired to becom a CIT and prays every night to have the opportunity to return next summer. My daughter was in tears thanking me for finding the camp and trusting that she would be safe. I could have never afforded to pay for the exposure that YES provided. Our lives have been forever changed. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Pamela Thompson

I can not thank the YES organization enough for giving my daughter the opportunity to create wonderful memories of her youth. Pleasant memories of trust and security in our childhood is what we as adults tap into during troubled times. My daughter came home a little less shy and whole lot more secure in who she is. There are many girls and boys such as mine, who just need for someone other than their parents to believe in them. Some of the programs that have nurturing environments are out of our reach due to our finacial situations and leave us feeling a little less worthy as parents. The YES organization found financial assistance for the camping trip fee and was instrumental in giving me the security I needed to be able to entrust my child to someone else for a week. YES helped my daughter and many other children, attend one week of camp during the summer. These children came back with new memories, improved social skills, and most important, tools that will allow them to become better adults. My daughter still glows when she talks about her experience!

I love YES, and I can say that this program has been a great help to our youth in the bay area. I'm a single mother of two and YES has been a blessing in supporting my family, my son in particular whom has been involved for about 4 years now. He loves getting out of the neighbor and traveling on a trail in the woods peacefully. As a thank you I was able to volunteer for the YES frundraiser in Berkeley and was very inspiring and uplifting to know that families come toghether to support our youth.... I want to say thank you in advance to the familes and organizations that support this great cause.... and to the staff that cust their tales for the youth in the surrounding bay that may have not be able to have such an unforgetable experience....
