There is a tremendous unmet need in Boston for out-of-school time programs. YES meets this need by providing Boston's inner-city youth with year-round outdoor enrichment and leadership programs. Over 1,600 youth are served by YES every year. Our mission is to inspire and challenge youth with physical and mental activities that foster life-long respect for self, others, and the environment.
YES is a 501(c)3 private nonprofit organization. The organization relies on the generous support of foundations, corporations, individual donations, and events. All contributions to YES are tax-deductible to the extent that is allowed by law.
