Youth Enrichment Services

Young Professionals Committee

The Young Professionals Committee at Youth Enrichment Services (YES) is a young professionals group dedicated to empowering urban youth in Boston through outdoor and enrichment programming.  Members consist of motivated individuals in their 20s, 30s, and 40s who are willing to fundraise, promote, and raise awareness for YES’s mission.  The committee provides young professionals in Boston the opportunity to network, volunteer, socialize, and give back.
