YES! Club Program Services



Clubs are designed for student leadership, growth and development.  With hands-on assistance from our team, clubs will elect officers, hold meetings, advocate and fundraise, and, ultimately, complete a school or community project.

We understand the power of working together, which is why we have partnered with several specialists in four focus areas to give students statewide access to expert advice.  Students will have the ability to communicate with these professional individuals to select and execute school or community projects.

Regardless of the location, each concept is adaptable to any area of the state. For example, if a Club is interested in saving sea turtles, the project may engage in a litter reduction or recycling program. The South Carolina Aquarium has great resources to see how reduced waste in any area of the state effects our sea turtles!

Each club is responsible for designing how the individual club with look, work, and feel.  We have sample bylaws in the YES! Manual, but they are simply a guide. 

We encourage you to be creative; this means that if you have an idea not already listed on our page, we would love to help you make it work! Our specialists are there to help you create a project that will be manageable, measurable, and buildable.

Although we expect you to take leadership in your program, we are always here if you need a helping hand or guidance. Just remember: the steps that you and your Club take together are the foundation for change across our state. Do not take lightly the impact that your Club will be able to make.
