We are proud to announce that Youth Enrichment Services (YES) has been selected as a new grantee partner of the REI Cooperative Action Fund, a community-supported public charity.
Thanks to the REI Fund’s generosity, over 1,200 youth will be impacted by our core programs like Operation SnowSports and Outdoor Adventure as part of this two-year grant. These activities include downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowboarding, biking, running, rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, and more.
YES is grateful to be partnered with a charity that supports our mission to inspire youth through outdoor experiences and leadership opportunities that build confidence and prepare them to summit life’s challenges.
About the REI Cooperative Action Fund
Every year, in the Spring and the Fall, the REI Fund announces new investments to provide unrestricted funding to nonprofit partners across three specific areas:
- Connecting people outside
- Creating space outside
- Centering health outside
Thank you to the REI Fund for recognizing the ways in which YES’ mission aligns with these pillars, and bringing together the collective strength of our community to support organizations that are improving the well-being of all people through time outside.
