Become a Strategic Partner with YES

YES deeply values the partnerships it maintains in the Boston community. Strategic Partners are schools, youth-serving organizations, and faith-based youth programs in Boston and especially those in Dorchester, Mattapan, Roxbury, and East Boston. After a positive first experience at YES, youth are likely to become more involved in community opportunities that foster personal development and an engagement in the outdoors.

YES offers four main programs to Strategic Partners in Boston:

  • Operation SnowSports: day-long ski/snowboard trips on weekends from December to March. Ages 7-18 (currently full for 2018)
  • Outdoor Adventure: day-long rock climbing/kayaking/mountain biking trips on weekdays from July to August. Ages 7-18 (opens April 2018)
  • Year-Round: programming from September to June featuring multiple adventure sports for schools with enrichment opportunities during the school day. Ages 12-18 (2 open spots)
  • Afterschool: a suite of 4-8 week programs in fall/spring including Skating 4 Good (skateboarding with community services), City Ascent (outdoor climbing), and Fly Fishing. Ages 12-18 (opens March 2018)

Partnership details including cost, size, date and times can be crafted in collaboration between the Strategic Partner and the YES Community Outreach Coordinator. All inquiries can be sent to the YES Community Outreach Coordinator, Ethan George, at outreach@yeskids.org.
