The Miami-Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (MDGLCC) recognized YES Institute as nonprofit of the year at their 17th Annual Awards Gala, where over 500 business and community leaders gathered for a majestic evening of celebration.
We are grateful for this acknowledgement, and proud that our work has been making a difference in the South Florida community for 22 years. The entire YES Institute team is more determined than ever to continue advancing our mission.
“Challenges facing our young people—bullying, harassment, rejection, violence—are not inevitable. Our work is stopping tragedies before they happen through powerful communication and education. It’s urgent to invest energy and effort into prevention on a broad scale to keep our kids alive and safe. Thank you to all our community partners for your commitment to this vision.” – Luke Jude, YES Institute Executive Director
