“I learned most from the role plays. They really helped me practice real world scenarios. In school, drama is destined to occur – this class definitely helped me deal with issues. I used Y.E.T. on my mother once or twice and it definitely got her to calm down. I wish I took Y.E.T. earlier.”- 18-year-old student
“Y.E.T. was very enjoyable and worth my time. Loved meeting new people and improving my conflict resolution skills. The course helps me communicate better in tight situations and will help especially in the years to come.”- 17 year old student
“I have learnt a lot and Y.E.T. will help me for the rest of my life. It has already improved my relationship with my parents. I think it was a great experience.”- 16 year old student
“This course is helpful for reading situations and keeping the emotional temperature low.”- 15 year old student
“Y.E.T. was very interesting as we don’t learn this at school. The role plays were very fun and made me want to do more. Mrs. B made sure we were enjoying the lesson and stayed focused.”- 14 year old student
