Youth Empowerment Solutions (YES) Program @ Beach Middle School
Feb 14 @ 12:20 pm – 3:00 pm

yes-logo-tagline-e1484929576308The Youth Empowerment Solutions Program (or “YES”) is designed to help middle school students develop the knowledge and skills they need to plan and lead community change projects here in Chelsea. SRSLY believes that the best way to make positive changes in our community, and reduce destructive behaviors like underage drinking and drug use, is to let youth take the lead. The YES Program prepares them to do just that.

The training consists of five training sessions at Beach Middle School and additional team meetings as needed through the end of the school year. The training sessions are held during elective periods and cover teamwork, leadership and project planning. The program includes a community asset visit, a discussion with community leaders, and a “windshielding” activity, during which youth learn how to identify community assets and liabilities.

Put Your Safe Home Sign Out!! @ Chelsea Community
May 7 – Jun 4 all-day

Chelsea Safe HouseNow is the time to get your Safe Home yard signs out of the garage and posted where visible in  your yard for prom & graduation season!

Posting your sign makes a statement that you care about the welfare of young people in our community – and it communicates to other adults that they should, too! Post your sign and invite your neighbors to do the same if they haven’t already joined the SRSLY Safe Homes List!

A “SRSLY Safe Home” is a home in which the family has committed to providing a safe and substance-free environment for their children, and any other youth who spend time there. Kids and adults can be confident that minors under the age of 21 will not be offered or allowed to use drugs or alcohol while they are in these families’ homes.

Contact us at info@srslychelsea.org or go to Safe Homes page and sign up via the web based-form!
