YES is a non-profit organization that has been serving youth since 1968 with outdoor, sports-based, and leadership development programs. YES serves over 1,600 youth annually through its three signature programs: Operation SnowSports, Outdoor Adventure, and the YES Academy.
The mission of Youth Enrichment Services (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 three tiers of programming which give youth new experiences, help youth gain confidence and leadership skills. YES aims to serve Boston-area youth, with a focus on the underserved neighborhoods of Mattapan, Roxbury and Dorchester.To learn more about YES, visit www.yeskids.org.
Team YES is running the 2015 Boston Marathon to raise funds to support YES's mission. All funds raised will be used to fund and expand after-school and outdoor programs for the Boston youth who need it most.
