Volunteer Info

We value our YES Volunteers! Without you, we would be challenged to offer the quality programming our children deserve. The most valuable aspect of being a volunteer with YES, is the warmth of a student connecting with you. They respect you, listen to you, and look for you to return week after week!! 

Our volunteer program is certified by Nashville’s Excellence in Volunteer Engagement (EVE) which recognizes high-quality volunteer management by nonprofit organizations. EVE is the first such certification effort in the nation and was created in 2011 by Mayor Dean’s office, Hands On Nashville and the Center for Non-Profit Management to recognize nonprofit agencies with effective volunteer programs and to encourage other organizations to join them in improving their volunteer opportunities so they can maximize their resources and provide the best quality services possible.

**Youth Encouragement Services does not offer court-ordered community service as a volunteer opportunity**

If you are unfamiliar with the different programs YES offers, you may want to start out by clicking on our Volunteer Opportunities page. Volunteers are required to be 18 years of age to assist outside of a group. We ask volunteer groups to have at least 1 adult chaperone per 8 youth volunteers under the age of 18.
