YSN brings that “special something” to initiatives, organizations and campaigns. We leverage best practices learned from two decades of building programs and content for ambitious young people, to craft events that achieve strategic objectives, leverage partnerships, spotlight stakeholders, cultivate young leaders, and have a lasting impact on the communities we touch. Let YSN Show You How!

Proven Impact Model

We combine unparalleled experience with best global practices and continuous innovation to design one day to two week programs that are game changing for organizations and the young people they aspire to impact.

Strategy: We analyze sponsor objectives, current offerings, and devise a plan to impact youth while achieving organization goals/

Content: We build compelling programs, curriculum and materials leveraging globally tested, proprietary tools from YSN in combination with original content written to specifically address the market and demographics.

Training:  We send the best trainers and experts in the world to inspire, inform, sculpt and expose participants to the very best information available in the most entertaining and engaging way possible.  Because tone matters.

Assessment: We collect pre and post data essential to proving tangible outcomes, impact, to ensure that key performance indicators are met. These insights also provide invaluable metrics to guide new programming and organizational innovation.

Localization: We work with local partners and often translation experts to ensure content developed stays true to the mission and tone, while ensuring integrity of cultural references.

Documentation: We capture the experience every step of the way with photography and video to ensure both participants and sponsoring organizations can maximize their ROI and the story lives on.

Branding: We design beautiful branding and craft strong messaging for all programs to establish a recognizable image and memorable impression.

Scalability: We build with scale in mind.  Programs we create can grow far beyond our engagement with teacher training, online resource development, and ongoing mentorship.

Promotion: We work with program sponsors, publicists, marketing teams, agencies, the press and of even government officials to generate and fuel exposure for key stakeholders.  We also can develop fliers, posters, advertisements, social media platforms and videos to promote programs, while fine-tuning tone and branding.

Recommendations: We conclude every assignment with recommendations for all stakeholders to keep going, growing, improving and impacting programs, conditions, and resources.
