About Us

Youth Transformation Services® (YTS) NFP, founded in 2013, is a 501(c)3 providing professional development for educators, parents, students, and community stakeholders. As a learning partner to schools, we provide products and services through social emotional learning (SEL) to positively impact the family, school, and community alignment.

I am Charisse Beach, Owner/CEO, who served as principal of Premier Academy in Joliet IL., a Regional Safe School for middle and high school students from five surrounding counties for students who had been expelled from their homeschools. Under my leadership, an average 83% of students transitioned back to their home schools with grade-level or above credits. This marked my first professional milestone; and I felt compelled to share my knowledge and experience to encourage other educators and parents. I authored At-Risk Students Transforming Student Behavior in 2013.

Robert Beach, Co-owner/COO, is YTS’ mental health expert. Robert is the Assistant Principal of Curriculum and Instruction at East Campus of Lockport Township High School. He works part time as a private therapist and provides direct mental health services for YTS youth. “I see therapy as a team effort, and love helping children, adolescents, and families make progress and reach their goals. In therapy, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Client-Centered, and Solution-Focused techniques to serve my clients. I further believe that everyone can accomplish great things through mentoring, counseling, and coaching."
