“YES Philly is a place where youth who’ve dropped out of school can discover their talents and dreams, while developing academic and job related skills, earning GEDs, and starting college or careers.”
Mission: The YESPhilly program helps students make key changes that put them on the path to success. Our goal is to develop students academic, technical, personal and critical thinking skills so that they can pass the GED and meet standards required for success in both postsecondary education and quality employment in todays economy.
Programs: We give students a chance to develop their creativity as well as skills theyll need for
college and careers. All students start with the Media Arts Sampler
Course, and can then sign up for ongoing studio classes in Video and Sound Production, Graphic Design, or Mural and Fine Arts. Students create and edit videos, record and edit soundtracks, design multi-image graphic projects, and learn to draw and paint. YESPhillys talented staff and state-of-the-art studios can be the launching pad for media arts careers or a place to enjoy creating and expressing yourself.
