Youth Enrichment Services


YES Programs Serve Youth Ages 7-18


YES programs offer year-round opportunities for outdoor and enrichment programs. Youth who join YES in order to participate in outdoor programs in the winter or summer often stay with us to pursue more in-depth opportunities like volunteering as junior instructors, girls’ leadership, college preparation, and job training.

Each program represents the vision of YES:

  • For youth to have access to affordable, in-depth programs that challenge them through outdoor sports and experiential education.
  • For youth to build strong relationships with positive role models and take advantage of apprenticeship opportunities to build technical and leadership skills.
  • For youth to have a safe place to engage in positive activities and quality experiences that foster character development and physical fitness.
