Since 1968, Youth Enrichment Services has taken more than 100,000 young people to the great outdoors. YES engages urban kids in an experience that takes them places theyve never been before, mentally and physically. YES teaches kids to dare to try something new, and in the process, gives them the confidence to believe they can achieve anything. With its highly successful outdoor and environmental experiential education programs - Operation Snowsports, Outdoor Adventure, Job Training, and the E-Team - YES is helping to lower the student attrition rate among urban youth by offering unique opportunities for positive risk-taking and practical learning that is both problem-focused and real-world experiences. YES is a 501(c)3 educational institution and is registered with the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office of Public Charities. As a not-for-profit organization, we rely on the generous support of private donations and the commitments of a great many volunteers.
