“I started YESS in the year 2013 after going through some personal issues in my life which badly affected my attendance and behavior in school. The YESS project helped me a lot to succeed academically, even though at times I hated it, but at the end I realised once I saw my results that it was worth it. With the outstanding effort and support from the staffs at YESS project, I was able to obtained 14 GCSE’s. I then went on to college and did a BTEC in Health & Social Care Level 3. Despite being in college, YESS were still supporting me with my work when needed.
Once again, the support of the staffs helped me to achieved a distinctions and set me on the right platform to study Midwifery in university. I am now in my first year of university and I’m so happy and grateful that I was referred to the YESS project. Without YESS I would have struggled significantly with education and I am more than thankful for their support in helping me succeed. Thank you.” – Shewarna
“With YESS, I was able to exceed my potential and expectations despite all the personal baggage I was carrying. Education has never been an easy road for me because of the lack of support from my previous schools. I tried A-levels before but didn’t do as well as I had hoped, and then YESS was recommended to me. They welcomed me with open arms and gave me the right advice and guidance to tackle my weaknesses and personal problems.
The high standard of endless support provided helped me to achieve a good set of results in my A-level Biology and Psychology. I am now in my third year of studying biomedical science in university.” – Tobi
“For a while I was not doing much with my life apart from taking care of my son. Mina and YESS have supported me and helped me to get more focused in sorting my life out. I am now more confident in my work than ever before. I have learnt to respect my self and have worked hard to gain a place at Camberwell College of Art to study foundation course. I am really happy with the way things are going as I have always been interested in Interior Design but I never had the equipment or facilities to pursue any ideas.” – Anonymous
