In the Spring 2015, the Junior League of Waterloo-Cedar Falls piloted the YOLO Youth Empowerment Series (YOLO Y.E.S.) at Bunger Middle School. The series was composed of four events and taught life skills such as healthy living, financial literacy, and deciding on a career. Approximately 20 students participated in the inaugural series. In 2015-16, YOLO Y.E.S. expanded across the fall and spring semester and featured additional learning opportunities.
