Client Testimonials

“YES engages the youth in a way that is relatable, useful, and applicable. Today’s youth are so connected technologically, YES shows them how to transition to adult life with one on one coaching, group discussion, and face to face networking. My daughters participated in the first YES motivational event. Dr. Jones and the event speakers facilitated a safe environment for all the attendees and made them feel valued.”

Desiree K. Butts, Military Education Administrator

“Dr. Jones has supported and assisted me in the development of my personal career for a number of years. She contributed significantly to learning success of the youth in our community.  Her unyielding and loyal devotion to the mission is sincere.  She has earned my grateful appreciation for her unselfish, faithful and devoted service.”

“I wanted to share these photos with you that Mrs. Parker took. Our Red Ribbon Week theme yesterday was Dress for Success. Our student decided to dress as a STARBASE teacher because he said that’s what he wants to do in the future. I thought you would enjoy seeing the impact that week made on him. Thank you so much for everything you do!”

Jessica Roberts, Lead Gifted Teacher, Windsor Forest Elementary School
