YES Club offers students alternative to peer pressure


Say yes to success is what one local youth group is telling community kids.

"The young eagles success club teaches you how to commit to yourself and get yourself together," said director Carl Cole.

The program was offered to kids who had the day off from school on Monday for Columbus Day.

The YES Club is an in school and after school program in several Northern Illinois school districts.

The leaders talk about everything with the teens from crime, drugs, and stress.  Things they unfortunately have to deal with on a day to day basis.

"From things that have maybe brought them down, mistakes they've made, wrong choices they've made. How to get up, dust themselves off and keep moving," said director of education Dianna Cole.

The YES Club is a nonprofit.  For more information about it, click here.
