Right now is a very exciting time for Youth Enrichment Services (YES). After many years of searching for a new home, a joint partnership development site has been identified in Jamaica Plain at 267 Amory Street. We feel that our new home will help upgrade YES as a leader in the youth development field in Boston with additional space, accessibility for bus and car drop off/pickup as well as proximity to the MBTA Orange Line, and increased accessibility for families in need of our services.
YES’s current facility is too small to safely accommodate our youth with dozens of high school youth participating in our year round, on-site leadership development program and weekly off-site adventure experiences for hundreds each season. YES has received overwhelmingly positive support for our future relocation from our families, leaders in the community, and volunteers. Moving will enable YES to expand programming, serve an additional 500 (3 years) and 700 (5 years) young people per year, and significantly strengthen the future of the organization. Thank you to the YES community for its past, present, and future support of our organization.
YES’s current facility located at 412 Massachusetts Ave in the South End is currently for sale.
