Press Release

Youth Empowerment Services, Inc. (Y.E.S.) hosted its first Worth Beyond Measure mentoring program on September 26, 2021. The virtual launch was facilitated by Speaker Jackie Brewton, who spoke to an online audience of well over 50 participants on topics such as How to Drama-Proof Your Back 2 School. The live session took place with live chat and interaction available with open discussion and comments ranging from peer pressure and the impacts of the presence of social media were discussed. “Talk to yourself. Uplift yourself. Love yourself” were words of encouragement given to teach the girls how to harness their own power of positivity and prompts about discerning true versus fake friendships were met with quick replies to “drop them completely” and “get rid of fake friends.”

Brewton emphatically gave verbal rewards to the girls offering that she was “glad to see that y’all aren’t letting society destroy your self-esteem” and closed out by thanking other panel hosts and Y.E.S. Founder, Roslin Fields for “letting her hang out with them tonight.”

Brewton’s energy and excitement was matched and met with many thanks and chat comments that left the girls saying “I love hearing you speak” and “thank you so much I was lifted”

Worth Beyond Measure is a fun and interactive monthly program designed to empower middle and high school girls through Christian principles to discover, embrace, and appreciate their self-worth leading to a healthy and productive lifestyle. Registrants must be invited to register and must commit to participate in all sessions which take place on Sundays over a series of three sessions on September 26th, October 17th, and November 14th, 2021 from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Additionally, participants should have the ability to access the interactive program and videos online.

As incentive to the girls, cash and other prizes will be awarded at the end of the program and Mentor matches will be available for all participants desiring further guidance.

In addition to Jackie Brewton, monthly session hosts offer an amazing platform of talented, motivational and inspirational Mentors ranging in topics such as Ocielia Gibson, “More than a Pretty Face” and Chris Joyce also know as ‘Choyce” and Ricardo Perry who will host a panel of gentleman facilitators from various high schools and colleges dubbed “Let’s Hear it From the Boys”
