About Us


The YES Partnership is a community-wide coalition dedicated to support Tuolumne County youth and families by preventing suicide, substance, and child abuse.  The Partnership was established in January 1986 in response to several teenage suicides in Tuolumne County, California. 

The YES Partnership works collaboratively with local organizations, parents, and teens to create a drug-free and suicide-safe community by increasing protective factors among youth through the following three strategies:

  • Engage youth in leadership opportunities
  • Support and provide positive adult interaction with youth
  • Develop youth assets

  • The TRACE program to reduce youth access to alcohol
  • The Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day
