31 Nights of Lights Lighting Ceremony at the Prudential Center


Youth Enrichment Services (YES), was chosen as a Prudential Center “31 Nights of Lights” 2016 Lighting Partner this winter.

For the month of December, the Prudential Tower lights up a different color each night to raise awareness of a local non-profit organization. On Thursday, December 22, YES will flip the switch to light up the Prudential Tower in bright orange and blue. The colors were selected  to represent  YES and shine a light on the unmet need for out-of-school leadership and outdoor programs for Boston youth. YES remains one of the few organizations in Boston that addresses the need for high-quality after-school programming for Boston area youth.

The 31 Nights of Light program was introduced in 2009 to celebrate local Boston-area organizations and draw attention to the great work they do in Boston and beyond. Utilizing a state-of-the-art LED lighting system, the 51st floor of the Prudential Tower will change color daily to honor its community partners.

As part of the 31 Nights of Light lighting, YES held a ceremony open to  YES families, children and supporters.
