Youth Enrichment Services (YES) is a non-profit organization that has been serving Boston youth since 1968 through outdoor, sports-based, and leadership development programs. YES impacts over 1,600 youth annually through its three signature programs: Operation SnowSports, Outdoor Adventure, and the YES Academy. The organization serves Boston youth (ages 7-18) with an intentional focus on reaching young people in the neighborhoods of Dorchester, Roxbury, and Mattapan.
The mission of YES is to inspire and challenge youth with physical and mental activities that foster life-long respect for self, others, and the environment. YES accomplishes this through its unique three-tiered programming which help young people gain new experiences in the outdoors, improve self-confidence, and develop leadership skills.
Members of Team YES are running the 2020 Boston Marathon to raise funds in support of the YES mission and Boston youth. 100% of funds raised will be used to support YES’s sports-based enrichment and leadership programming. Team YES’s fundraising goal is $40,000. Visit www.yeskids.org to learn more about YES. Thank you for supporting our 2020 Boston Marathon runners!
