YES Press Release – Open House to Celebrate Renovations

Orange County’s Youth Employment Service Grand Reopening
Community Invited to Visit the New Facility

Costa Mesa, CA (September 16, 2013) — Youth Employment Service (YES), serving young people and the business community for over forty years, continues to make a difference in the lives of youth and employers.  After serving over 28,000 Orange County youth during the past 20 years at the current location, the YES building in Costa Mesa has been remodeled and revitalized to help better serve the community.

On Thursday, September 19th from 5:30 to 7pm, YES will host an open house in its newly renovated office at 114 East 19th Street.  With larger workspaces, new areas for connected workstations, and redesigned meeting rooms, YES, a non-profit organization that links youth and employers in Orange County is enhancing its ability to help young people acquire job-hunting skills and find jobs.
“Hoag Hospital and its service suppliers led the effort to make the YES offices work more effectively,” said John Hobson, president of the YES Board of Directors.  Hobson continued, “At Thursday’s grand reopening, everyone can see the results of this combined effort and meet some of the people who made the redesign possible.”
“I hope our neighbors in Costa Mesa and Newport Beach will come to our open house so they can see the new office which provides a better environment to help youth searching for jobs,” said Kathy Du Vernet, YES Executive Director.  She continued, “I want to issue a special invitation to employers and past YES clients to stop by Thursday evening and see the difference.”
