A Word About El Simpson
Mr. Simpson has been in the forefront of young adults within his community for over 20 years.
He has always strives to instill a better way of uplifting young adults. With that in mind he, decided that there was a need for a better way of bringing new leaders back into our urban cities through Y.E.S., and Life Skills University, Inc.
Through these two programs Y.E.S., will give disadvantaged youths an opportunity for a successful and productive life.
Our goal is to educate young adults between the ages of 21 to 24 in the areas of financial stability and community involvement. This is done through Life Skills University, which they will attend for 4 years.
Youth Empowering Society “Y.E.S.” will house, clothe and feed them. Ultimately, each graduate will be equipped with the qualifications to enhance their communities.
El Simpson’s Life Experiences
Y.E.S. is a doorway into Life University, where we take 50 youths from the surrounding urban areas and show them basically everything regarding how to become a integral part of their community and society itself.
Those chosen for the program will be a mixture of young ladies and young men, we will house them, feed them, clothe them and basically, give them all the tools for financial freedom. During the program they will learn everything from shopping on a budget and then learning how to fix healthy meals for themselves. We will be working with the banks in the community to get everyone in the program a checking and savings account if they don’t already have one.
The banks will come in and do classes regarding financial understanding. The program is a doorway to building a better foundation for them and their families. All the meals are fixed in the cafeteria which their 3 meals a day will be prepared for them and by them. This program is innovative in its concept, simply because we are only showing them old school values 1 student at a time. Los Angeles is the pilot program as Y.E.S. grows successfully; we will be able to take this model to other urban communities across the world. Because every place has an urban community. And YES and Life University will build an army of financial wizards 1 student at a time!
