School-Year Programs

School-Year Partnerships

YES engages four Strategic Partners during the school year in a weekly or bi-weekly program model beginning in either fall or spring. The program recruits 10 youth from a middle or high school and one teacher or administrator chaperone to participate in adventure programming during a ~3 hour block of the school day.

The following are program goals for youth:

  • build confidence by gaining sport-specific skills while rock climbing, kayaking, and mountain biking with professional instructors
  • experience new places and activities that are not readily available to most Boston youth
  • become a strong steward for natural places in and around Boston neighborhoods
  • seek deeper involvement in YES programs like YES Academy
