Changing Young Lives

Our Youth Empowerment Services (YES) use research-based and nationally recognized approaches to educate girls, boys and students who are non-binary. These are violence prevention programs that teach elementary, middle and high school students how to lead conversations about healthy relationships, recognize signs of an abusive relationship, and become empowered to make positive and healthy decisions.

Each of our YES programs listed below works towards fostering healthy, safe and equitable relationships for youth, helping them thrive through meaningful connections in safer communities.

Programs include:

It Takes a Village

Prevention programs for young people have been shown to be an effective way to educate and stem violence. These interventions should remain consistent throughout a young person’s life to have truly long-lasting effects. The Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center brings a variety of empowering programs into local schools to help young people make healthy decisions that positively impact their lives.
