Together, we can help our kids make safe choices and strengthen our community!

YES Safe Choices is a unique youth leadership program, sponsored by Senator Fred Akshar and Lourdes Hospital, that is focused on drug and alcohol prevention. We work to educate the young people of our area about the dangers of substance abuse and offer fun and safe activities for families to spend quality time together.

Through youth leadership training, like YES LEADS, we teach our kids about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. Each year, YES trains over 500 middle and high school students to serve as positive role models for younger students. These students in turn work with thousands of elementary and middle school students through presentations and activities, like youth empowerment and bullying prevention, to promote safe choices.
