- SKIESUnlimited provides the framework or umbrella for all instructional programming in the CYS System worldwide.

- Through SKIESUnlimited, children and youth in CDS, SAS, MS&T Programs have equal access to opportunities that expand their knowledge, inspire them, allow them to explore, and acquire new skills.
Youth people spend as much as 80% of their waking time outside the classroom. When involved in instructional programs during the critical hours of 3-8 PM, they are less likely to engage in undesirable behavior. Children and youth participate in instructional programs for a variety of reasons: to explore new skills, to pursue and nurture personal interests, to interact socially with others, to build a resume, to bolster a college application, or to foster a close relationship with caring, knowledgeable adults outside of the home.
