Learning Ally’s YES! Program
Click on your state below to join the YES! Program and learn what’s happening in your area.
Currently available in Colorado and New Jersey and growing, Learning Ally's YES! Program is an in-person program that pairs younger students with learning differences with an older student who is trained to help guide them through a series of goals. The purpose of YES! is to train students with learning differences to recognize their strengths and weaknesses, to help them build confidence and to provide them with the tools to become strong self-advocates. Each student is assigned a Youth Ambassador who will monitor member progress, act as a resource and provide guidance. Through the four annual events, your student will:
- Build Self Esteem and Confidence
- Receive Support and Suggestions
- Expand Communication Skills
- Learn About Dyslexia
- Learn Self-Advocacy Skills
- Build Friendships and Network
Parents will also have the opportunity to attend informational presentations at each event and will have the chance to network with other parents.
