BENEFITING: YOUTH FOR ENVIRONMENTAL SANITY
Make a Gift to Celebrate Our 25th Birthday:
Launch Us into Another 25 Years of Transformation!
YES! has the honor of working with thousands of amazing social change agents around the US and around the world.
For 25 years now, we have connected, inspired and collaborated with multigenerational leaders to join forces for thriving, just and sustainable ways of life for all. We work at the meeting point of internal, interpersonal, and systemic transformation, through our ground-breaking programs like YES! Jams and ongoing alumni support.
Will you help us jump start into the next 25 years? Any donation is meaningful. Increments of 25, like 50, 250, 1000, can add to the fun!
Help YES! keep the Jams going and growing -- we co-organized 16 Jams in 2015 (the most ever!) and are well on our way to 25 Jams in this coming year. Your contributions enable us to offer financial scholarships for anyone in need and support diverse communities of change-makers globally.
Share our campaign - http://ow.ly/1095qS - with your friends, colleagues, families, and more, to help us reach our goal
Follow us at #YES25 and share your own tour, camp, Jam memories on FB, Twitter, Instagram, etc. with the hashtag: #YES25
More details on how the money will be spent:
1) Supporting the 26 Jams currently happening or in the works --
from long-time existing programs like the Middle East Youth Leadership Jam and North America Leadership Jam, to brand-new emergences like the New York City Jam, the Nile River Basin Jam, and the US Black Leadership Jam...
2) Enabling Jam alumni cross-pollinating projects --
like new website features, group hangouts, and in-person reunions...
3) Creating new storytelling and visionary media --
to share the tools and practices of the Jams more widely and make them more easily understandable, feel-able, and accessible to Jamily and the world....
4) Developing YES!'s 'business' offerings --
to share our work in more institutional contexts, to bring changes within existing organizations, businesses and environments and simultaneously generating new revenue for YES! to provide more support to Jam teams and participants.
25 hi-fives, hugs and deep bows of gratitude for each of you!
Thank you for all you've done to support the YES! journey and our collective impact.
