About Us

Our Mission: In partnership with nature, YES Nature to Neighborhoods nurtures leaders who champion the wellbeing of our community.

YES supports and nurtures under-represented Richmond residents as leaders with the skills, resources, and confidence to work toward a just society and a sustainable environment. Experiences in nature provide a supportive setting for youth, adults, and families to develop meaningful relationships, build trust in themselves and each other, and take safe risks in new environments. YES provides access to these experiences for those historically excluded from the outdoors, and is a leader at the forefront of the movement to increase equity and inclusivity in the outdoor and environmental education fields. Our vision is for Richmond youth, adults, and families to lead healthy, connected lives; motivate change in their neighborhoods; and inspire a safe, thriving community.

 Since 1999, YES has provided outdoor access to over 5,500 youth from Richmond and West Contra Costa County to Summer Camp, facilitated Family Camps for 1,200 families, and has evolved to become a well-established promoter of leadership and wellness practices reaching more than 550 West Contra Costa County residents each year.
