What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Yes Education identifies weaknesses in our community and finds ways to make them strengths. We think of innovative ways to solve problems. For example, our badly needed computers for students 10 years ago. But if you looked at our school's fixed asset report, it indicated we had several computers. The truth was, we had over a thousand broken, depreciate and outdated computers filling up rooms including bathrooms from floor to ceiling. That all had to be cleared out by removing hard disks, batteries, taking inventory, ewasting all remaining parts. After that was completed, we started a computer repair club with the help of two incredible volunteers and some donors. Not only was the club able to use old parts and donated computers to give to students to help them with their homework, the student volunteers were able to learn new skills to land high-paying IT jobs. We are now looking for ways to improve food and housing security by developing urban farms and tiny homes.

Computer Repair Club

Our computer repair club is held in the Z4 room after school every Tuesday from 2:30 to 5:00. The class is taught by Brian Walsh, a retired Intel executive, and Barbara Keen, a retired Air Force computer and electronics specialist, who are volunteering their time and talents. We are also learning some other computer skills such as programming, robotics and arduinos. The class is fun and free! The class will also be also offered throughout the summer on Tuesdays from 2:30 to 4:30.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We hope to teach young people how to live a minimalist lifestyle. Instead of buying unnecessary luxury items: invest in a tiny home on a trailer, grow and prepare your own food instead of eating out, prepare your own healthy drinks instead of purchasing single serving beverages, learn life-skills that will earn you more money, create online curriculum using digital media to make the world a better place.

By partnering with experts that are also passionate about solving the same problems you are working on. By doing the actual field work instead relying on theories. It is important to measure both mistakes and failures so future generations can learn and improve from them. Looking for strategies that improve the quality of life for all people.

Even though our nonprofit is new, we have had 10 years of experience working with great partners and volunteers. We can continue to do this by visiting successful projects and partnering with them to improve our capabilities for future projects.

In 2006, our school won a Green Ribbon Award by the federal government for it's efforts to be sustainable. In addition to computers and sustainability projects, we aim to have students start designing tiny homes and urban farming projects.
