My Experience At Y.E.S.

This is my first year in the Y.E.S program and I am enjoying this experience. I have met new people, learned new things, and understand plant life bettter. The main three things that I really like about the Y.E.S program is it's teaching you better people skills, the program challenges you in differennt types of ways, and you're learning about multiple things at one time. You are learning better people skills because you're surrounded by different people that you don't know and as a YES Teen it is your job to work with them. The program also challenges you in different types of ways by getting you out of your comfort zone. If you're a shy person; you to be around strangers, if you're a quiet person; you have to speak, and if you're an outcast or like to keep to yourself; you have to work with your group members. Y.E.S is teaching you multiple thngs at one time about science, responsiblities, work ethics, and leadership skills. I believe these are important skills for teenagers to learn. Here at YES I was pulled out of my comfort zone and in the beginning I was sort of shy but because of my teammates and my supervisor I feel more comfortable and have grown as a person. I am no longer afraid to speak in front of a crowd or shy. I have become more outspoken and helpful to those around me. I like being apart of the YES Program and I am looking forward to being here each summer!!
