The Youth Employment Skills (YES) Program: An on-base volunteer program for high school students. This program, underwritten by the Air Force Aid Society (AFAS), is a joint effort between AFAS and Airman & Family Services Flight to offer high school students an opportunity to gain valuable work skills, "bank" dollar credits toward their post-secondary education, and have a positive impact on their base community. YES allows high school students to "bank" $4 in grant funding for every hour volunteered in an on-base function. Students may accumulate as many as 250 hours over all 4 years of high school combined, for a potential maximum of $1000 toward their future vocational-technical or academic endeavors. In addition, the base is credited with $2 for every volunteer hour.
