YESS Healthy Lifestyles

YESS Academy is based in Colorado - the first state in the country to legalize recreational Cannabis-use. After years of research, we now know that the most effective adolescent drug education depends on context, and programming should be designed based on the individual realities of a school.

Expert Courses

We provide engaging courses about drug awareness & education that help students learn to make healthy decisions for themselves.

Flexible LMS Delivery

Our online programs can be integrated into any Learning Management System (LMS). Don't have an LMS? We will provide one for you!

Self-guided Lessons

Our online training programs provide the convenience of learning at your own pace, from the comfort of home or in the classroom.

We get it - finding a drug education program that works is difficult.

The most effective adolescent drug education programming should be designed based on the individual realities of a school.
Let us show you the possibilities.

You are in good care
