The Foundations conference afforded you the opportunity to learn about many new programs. Indeed, we hope you found ours to be an ally when working with teens and helping them discover who they are. !

With the right program, we can help them return to the task of learning and managing their developing identities. ! We know you have many resources from which to choose your curriculum, research and inside scoop on teen life. We hope you will consider YSS as a reliable and useful source.

YSS teen quotes of the month:

“When I first heard about having to learn about myself in health class, I thought, what a waste of time. We just finished our term and I have to say, I was so wrong. It was the best course I’ve taken in school so far.”

As all my friends started dating and doing the boy-girl thing, I was like so confused. I didn’t get it. I still don’t really get it but I’m beginning to see how thinking about it and
asking questions and knowing what’s ok with me is a good thing.

“I’m beginning to learn that i am not so crazy as I thought. everyone is crazy and weird
is normal” Ian, YSS student book one, age 12.
