tour's presentation is educational, inspiring, and empowering."

"Few people can take an
audience full of junior high school students, make them laugh,
make them think, and teach them that they can save the earth
at the same time. But the YES! Tour is doing exactly that."

Youth for Environmental Sanity (YES!) is a concerned
group of teenaged environmentalists who criss-cross the country
in a cramped old station wagon presenting their message to 200,000
students a year. Their goal is to inform young people about environmental
issues and empower them to make a difference.The YES! Tour video
follows these articulate young activists as they make their entertaining
and fact-filled presentation with its passionate call to action.
Members of the multi-racial group are profiled
in some funny and poignant personal moments offstage. In one scene
on the road, the group discusses how important it is for them to
find a healthy place to eat other than fast food restaurants -
an important message in itself to young people. The video is a
great way to stimulate discussion on environmental issues, and
the value of individual commitment or group action on any issue.
