WHAT IS Y.E.S. ?
Y.E.S. stands for Youth Expanding Services.
The Austin High School Y.E.S. Program promotes student participation and contribution to a wide variety of community services.
The purpose of the program is to encourage a lifelong interest in volunteering.
This program promotes volunteerism more than philanthropy. Your community service contribution is recognized by the school when 100 hours of service are accumulated over the course of your high school career (with no more than 25 hours in the summer).
PARTICIPATION IN THE Y.E.S. PROGRAM IS VOLUNTARY.
The Y.E.S. Program is YOUR responsibility.
Your willingness to serve the community and your ability to accomplish a long term and worthwhile project is demonstrated by constantly seeking a variety of volunteer opportunities, turning in the required forms in a timely manner and keeping track of your Y.E.S. hours. This Y.E.S. website is designed to help you achieve that goal.
All students must have a contract on file before any recognition will be awarded. Contracts and volunteer forms can be found under the CONTRACT & FORMS tab.
Good luck and Happy Volunteering!

Y.E.S. HOURS CAN BE USED IN COLLEGE APPLICATIONS.
Community service is an integral part of the college acceptance criteria. Your volunteering hours entered in the Y.E.S. system are a record you can use for your college application along with the certificate you obtain.
