Mission Statement

The mission of Youth Enrichment Services (YES) is to inspire and challenge inner-city Boston youth with physical and mental activities that foster life-long respect for self, others, and the environment.


Background Statement

Founded in 1968, the mission statement of Youth Enrichment Services (YES) is to “inspire and challenge inner-city Boston youth with physical and mental activities that foster life-long respect for self, others, and the environment.” Each year over 1,500 Boston youth ages 7-18 participate in YES’s continuum of empowerment, outdoor, and leadership programs. Under the careful guidance of trained staff and volunteers, YES’s programs serve as a platform for promoting healthy behaviors and a gateway for urban youth to reach their full potential.

Tier 1 / Introductory Experiences & Activities– Goal is to give youth new experiences in the outdoors. These are one-time experiences and activities within the organization’s Operation SnowSports and Outdoor Adventure programs. 

Tier 2 / Intermediate Experiences & Activities– Goal is to give youth opportunities to build confidence, develop character, and increase their skills. Activities take place in the outdoors. Youth regularly interact with positive adult role models. These are multiple-interaction experiences and activities within the organization’s Operation SnowSports and Outdoor Adventure programs.

Tier 3 / High Impact Leadership Programs– Goal is to create pathways to leadershipfor teens. Activities take place on-site at YES, in the outdoors, and in the community. These are high interaction programs requiring a year-long or seasonal commitment from youth. The following programs encompass Tier 3: Girls Outdoor Adventure Leaders (GOAL), Junior Volunteer Program, Career Exploration Program, Track & Field Team, and Ski & Snowboard Team.

The YES Academy houses three high-impact programs that challenge urban youth to achieve greater success in school, work, and life. Programs offered are the Girls Outdoor Adventure Leaders(GOAL), Junior Volunteer Program, and Career Exploration. Over 95 inner-city teens participate in the YES Academy programs annually. In the YES Academy, youth develop leadership skills, give back through community service, learn professional / workplace skills, and prepare for college. High school seniors in the YES Academy can apply to the Richard Williams Memorial College Scholarship named in honor YES’s late founder. The YES Academy programs are a significant presence in youth’s lives and programs run throughout the year.  

YES engages young people who have limited access to outdoor activities and sports, especially ethnic minorities from low-to-moderate income families who live in Boston’s inner-city neighborhoods. Neighborhoods served include Dorchester, Roxbury, Mission Hill, Hyde Park, Mattapan, and East Boston. Nearly one out of three youth served live in single-parent households. Girls comprise 46% of participants in the organization overall. Three out of five youth served by YES are minorities.

YES believes in:

  • Challenging and supporting youth development through outdoor sports and experiential education.
  • Positive power of mentoring.
  • Sharing the love and enjoyment of the outdoors.
  • Fostering stewardship of the natural environment.

 YES values:

  • Accessibility, affordability, and safety.
  • Relationships built on honesty, trust, and respect.
  • Volunteerism and our volunteers who are positive role models.

YES’s Board of Directors is 42% people of color; staff is 50%; and volunteers are 33%. One in four agency volunteers are YES alumni.


Impact Statement

YES is focused on growing the organization's highest impact programs in order to positively influence a new and growing generation of Boston youth. The organization's leadership is currently implementing a five-year Strategic Plan to increase the organization's capacity to provide year-round, high-impact programs that provide a dynamic continuum of opportunities for children and teens as they develop and grow throughout elementary, middle and high school. The plan calls for significant fund development to support this planned program growth. Organization-wide, there is a commitment to achieve its goal of expanded youth enrollment by at least 40% by 2015.

YES is pleased to report that in FY13 almost 1,000 youth were served through its Intermediate and High-Impact programs and that a record number of youth were served in its highest impact programs which are offered through the YES Academy. Additionally, in April 2013, YES held its 3rd Annual Black Diamond Gala which raised a record amount of revenue. Last year, YES also secured a significant multi-year gift to support increased fundraising efforts and establishment of a major gifts infrastructure.

YES’s programs have a long history of positive results and impact on teens and children. Youth who participate in YES programs show increased self-confidence, leadership skills, teaching/mentoring skills, vocational skills and aspirations to attend college. A 2010 survey of YES alumni found that 100% have graduated high school, over 70% have a vocational or college education, 29% hold a graduate degree and 50% exercise three times a week or more. A full 90% said YES had positive role in their decision to pursue an education.


Needs Statement

There is a strong body of research demonstrating the importance of having access to out-of-school programs and the positive role that sports play in the lives of disadvantaged youth. Major cities throughout the U.S. have found that sports activities reduce juvenile criminal activity and arrests by 24-55%.  In Dorchester, a low-income Boston neighborhood with a high crime rate, only one out of four of the neighborhood’s 13,500 youth have access to out-of-school programs.  In the city’s Mattapan, Roxbury, South Boston and the South End districts, as few as one out of 10 youth have after-school program slots.  Nearly half of YES participants live in these highly underserved neighborhoods.
YES has several significant needs in the area of capacity building:
 
1. Outcomes Measurement: Improving YES's ability to measure the impact of its programs by identifying funding for the contract position of an Outcomes Measurement Consultant who has applied research and evaluation expertise in youth development, physical fitness, leadership development and social networks.
 
2. Technology: Hiring an onsite IT/Website Specialist.
 
3. Building /Space: YES needs to engage a consultant to recommend how to maximize the agency’s capital assets: YES’s Boston headquarters worth an estimated $1.75 million and two leases on recreational lodges in Monterey, MA and Killington, VT.  The growth in on-site high-impact programming at the Boston headquarters has resulted in a high demand for meeting space and access to computers.
 
4. Fundraising:  Strengthen YES fundraising capacity to increase individual donations and expand special event revenue in order to support the organization's strategic plan goal of serving 40% youth by 2015.

 


CEO Statement

I am honored to have served as the Executive Director of Youth Enrichment Services since 2008. It is a privilege to lead this organization through a critical part in its next chapter. YES owes much to its founders, Richard and Mary Williams, who built this organization from the ground up. It is my goal, as their successor, to be a true steward of the YES mission. 

Today, YES benefits from the hard work of YES's talented staff; the unwavering efforts of the Board of Directors, Trustees and Advisors; the dedication of over two hundred inspiring volunteers; and the support of a giving, engaged community of former YES kids and families. 

Every day I leave YES’s office, I leave knowing we have made an impact on the children of Boston. 
Bryan Van Dorpe, Executive Director

Program Long-Term Success 
YES programs are intended to help youth lay the foundation to achieve greater success in school, work and life. YES youth develop self-confidence and a healthy lifestyle, connect with positive role models and become lifelong leaders and learners.
Program Success Monitored By 

YES utilizes a variety of tools to measure and monitor the success of its programs. YES has undergone training on outcomes measurement through a partnership with the Boston Youth Sports Initiative and has developed a web-based platform for capturing and reporting statistics and outcomes. YES staff tracks evaluation data and uses it to make program changes on an ongoing basis.

For all programs, participant demographics are collected, including sex, neighborhood of residence and race/ethnicity of participants so that we can accurately determine who we are and are not reaching and how well we are serving our target population. Attendance is taken and monitored for all programs. YES has high expectations for consistent attendance, as attendance expectations teach important lessons about accountability to our participants.

We routinely conduct pre- and post participant surveys to measure changes in self perception on factors such as confidence and to measure the development of specific skills, such as resume writing. Survey questions are also used to capture the youths' satisfaction with the program, staff and volunteers. In addition, surveys are conducted with parents, who are asked about their satisfaction with the program and about the impact they observe the program having on their child. Supervisors provide observation and evaluation feedback on the participants, rating the teens' performance and level of technical and workplace skills.

We also gather and track information on the number of YES youth who return the following year, who participate in additional programming and the duration of their involvement. Other measures used by YES include capturing data on high school graduation rates, and college application and attendance rates.

Examples of Program Success 

Recent surveys demonstrate that YES’s programs are having a positive impact on the youth served. A survey of parents whose children participated in the Operation SnowSports program in FY12 showed that 93% report their children enjoyed YES’s programs and 77% felt their children’s interaction with adults had an “extremely” or “very” positive impact. A full 73% said their children learned they could do things they did not think they could do before and 93% would recommend YES to other families. In their narrative responses, 64 of 70 parents used the words independence, confidence, responsibility, handling challenges and/or taking risks to describe what their child learned while participating in YES’s programs.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
