Welcome to the Travis High School Y.E.S. (Youth Expanding Services) Program. The program is sponsored by the William B. Travis Parent Volunteer Organization. As a senior graduate you will be awarded a beautiful medal, which is worn with pride at graduation. One of the distinctive characteristics of the United States is our conviction that each individual can make a difference through volunteer service. The Y.E.S. program provides our students with the opportunity to get involved through voluntary service at the local level and to make a difference in their own neighborhoods and communities
Helpful tips for summer volunteering
Only the first 25 summer hours will be recognized for the YES Program.
If volunteering outside, use sunscreen, wear a hat and drink plenty of water.
Remember to take your service hour sheet with you to the event.
"Back to School " opportunities are counted as regular hours.
Make a copy of the service hour sheet and keep them in a safe place (folder).
Keep a folder for service hour sheets to hand in at school after Labor day in September.
Have a wonderful, safe summer !

These hours are unlimited.
Monetary Donations = hours earned for donation items e.g. Shared Dreams Toiletry Drive, Nurses Office. 1 hour = $10 of purchase with receipt affixed to the hour sheet. (Maximum of 25 hours) We would prefer students not to reach a maximum on these donations.
