YMCA Earth Service Corps (YESC)
Welcome to YESC!
We are YMCA Earth Service Corps! For over two decades we have been providing teens in the Seattle community with an engaging environmental education curriculum. We are happy to announce that this amazing program is now available in Spokane! Through service projects, field trips, and outdoor adventures, our students become strong, confident, and responsible environmental leaders.
A national YMCA program founded in 1989, YESC was started by the YMCA of Greater Seattle. Since its inception, YESC has expanded across the nation, with branches from California to Massachusetts.
YESC is an innovative youth-led program that empowers students to take a hands-on role in creating a healthier environment in their schools, communities and region while nurturing a respect for diversity within the natural world.
Young people in Earth Service Corps are recognized as valuable resources who collaborate with peers, teachers and community members to solve pressing environmental issues in their communities.
This is your moment. Get involved with YESC to experience what it's all about! More Info about YESC Activities.
