YES Foundation

About Us

The YES FOUNDATION (Youth, Education and Sports) was established in 1996 as an educational not for profit 501(c)(3) organization and was founded by Marianne Zaugg, a former tennis professional. The agency is dedicated to healthy living with the mission to offer services in health, fitness and wellness.


In 1996, the agency introduced its first tennis program to support children’s fitness that followed with nutrition education classes. Tennis tournaments continue to be part of our organization. Within a few years, a guided imagery program was added to support our adult clients on their wellness journey. This concept of fitness, health and wellness became the foundation of our organization, hence encouraging our consumers of all ages to embrace healthy living practices for optimum health.

During the pandemic, the online health and wellness platform was formed. It is a membership program giving the consumer access to the Wellness Collective, its services and practitioners. With that, a YES Library was added to support one’s personal wellness goals.

The YES Library offers a variety of health and self-improvement tools to help our clients to stay motivated in building their goals. CDs, MP4s great streaming platforms, or recommended blogs and books can be found in the YES Library. Our dedicated and highly qualified practitioners contribute valuable health, fitness and wellness tips to support wellbeing. If you are a member practitioner and are interested in publishing your wellness articles, please email us at
