Clients enrolled with Project YES are assigned to a Youth Advisor who provides case management. A Youth Advisor's goal is to create an open relationship with the client where he/she feels comfortable to discuss real issues that are (or have been) an obstacle to obtaining success and accomplishing personal goals. Upon identification of a client's needs, the Youth Advisor works with the client to create a plan on how those needs/issues will be addressed.
