The private non-profit agency Youth Empowerment Siskiyou advocates for trauma-exposed, foster, and at-risk youth. YES operates a Court Appointed Special Advocate program, a trauma-informed summer camp program, and a supervised visitation program. We strive to build and support a strong local community in Siskiyou County, where every child, teen and young adult is and feels safe, loved, and empowered.
Equity. Individualized service plans better meet the needs of the people we serve. "One size fits all" may still leave people underserved.
Evolution. We are a locally responsive organization therefore we value engagement with our community. We want to grow together.
Nurture. We believe everyone deserves to be treated with compassion, dignity and empathy. We embrace trauma-informed care.
Integrity. We strive to be transparent as an organization and encourage our community to hold us accountable in discontinuing the harm that has been caused in the past by child welfare organizations.

We strongly encourage all to apply (including people of color; lesbian; bisexual; queer; trans and gender non-conforming people; intersex people; and people with disabilities).
