Youth Employment Service


KickStage Consulting are honored to sponsor and support Youth Employment Service in Orange County.

The mission of Youth Employment Service of the Harbor Area (YES) is to teach youth and young adults ages 16-24 the skills needed to secure and maintain meaningful employment, and to offer programs that help young adults improve their employability, career choices and quality of life.

Helping youth find and keep a job is what YES is all about. YES is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that envisions a community in which youth and young adults achieve economic independence, obtain personal self-sufficiency and lead fulfilling lives.

Founded in 1970, YES was initiated by community leaders who believed that early employment is critical to the positive development of young adults. As visionaries, their observations were made before the idea of formal work-related programming for teens became widespread. That initial vision is now supported by extensive research on youth development and employment. For over 45 years, YES has served as a bridge between young adults seeking employment and the business community seeking capable and enthusiastic young employees. We provide our comprehensive employment services out of our site in Costa Mesa–which we own and where we have been located for 20 years–and reach additional youth through presentations at high schools and youth-serving organizations throughout Orange County.
