About Us

Since 1999, YES has immersed thousands of underserved Richmond and West Contra Costa County youth and families in nature, providing pathways for residents to become leaders in their community. Exposure to and facilitated experiences in nature are core values at the heart of YES’ work. These safe outdoor spaces foster a sense of discovery and openness for participants, and serve as a catalyst for cross-cultural interaction and heightened engagement. YES connects these outdoor camp experiences in nature to home by creating community leadership pathways through programming that inspires participants to lead healthy, connected lives and become change agents who build a safer, thriving community.
