Share Your YSS Story

YSS is celebrating our 45th anniversary this year and we want to hear from you! Tell us about your involvement with YSS in a video clip.

Grab your phone and record a brief message addressing any or all of the following questions:

  • How did you become connected to YSS?
  • What is your experience with YSS?
  • What does YSS mean to you?
  • Any words or comments you would share with the staff, donors, clients, volunteers, or community supporters of YSS?

Complete the form below and upload your clip. Thank you for taking the time to share your story!

Here are some samples of the videos we already have had submitted.

There is a 20mb maximum upload size. If your video is too large to upload, please go to your camera settings in your phone and reduce the video quality.  Your camera is most likely creating too large of a file because it’s set to 4K.

On an iPhone, go to Settings > Camera, tap Record Video, and select your preferred resolution.

On an Android, go to the Camera app’s shooting modes. Touch the Settings icon. Choose Resolution & Quality. Choose a resolution or video quality setting from the list.

Standard video recording 

  • 720p HD at 30fps:
  • 1080p HD at 30fps
  • 1080p HD at 60fps
