Mission Statement

The mission of the YMCA Earth Service Corps is to empower students to become effective, responsible, global citizens by providing opportunities for environmental education and action, leadership development and cross-cultural awareness.

Description

We are YMCA Earth Service Corps! For over two decades we have been providing teens in our community with an engaging environmental education curriculum. 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.
