Youth Educational Support Service

Early in 2009, a group of committed NSW South Coast volunteers established a group called Youth Educational Support Service (YESS). It aims to help young people on the South Coast achieve their full potential in their education and careers. 

YESS now boasts about 60 active members and is working closely with Cobargo, Bermagui, Quaama and Narooma primary schools, Narooma High School and the Little Yuin Preschool at Wallaga Lake Koori Village. In 2013 we started at Tilba and Bega Valley public schools. In 2015 we will start a program at Bega High School.

Members include former teachers, retirees, parents and interested community members.

Volunteers needed

With your help, we could extend our activities to more schools in the region. YESS is always looking for more dedicated volunteers. If you'd like to become involved, contact us now.
