Issues: Children & Youth, Human Services

Location: 2811 MacDonald Ave Richmond CA 94804 USA

Mission: Youth Enrichment Strategies' mission is to inspire connection and belonging. We do this by sending hundreds of low-income children from Richmond and West Contra Costa County to summer camps annually; by bringing families to Family Camp to experience respite and bonding in nature; and by providing our community with PeaceTalk, non-defensive communication workshops.
Results: Nearly 3,000 children ages 8 - 16 sent to week-long summer camps at little or no cost. Six Family Camps each year provided to children and families of three low-income elementary schools. Over $160,000 in camperships provided to our community in 2008. Annual support from more than 300 individual and major donors and over 15 local Bay Area Foundations. Offices in the middle of Richmond and the heart of the community we serve.
Target demographics: Low income children and families in the Richmond, CA area.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 900+
Programs: YES sends low-income, minority children from West Contra Costa County to 6 different summer camps and brings 100 family participants to each of four family camp weekends a year programmed and run by YES staff. We also provide workshops in our community that offer effective communication techniques and tools to parents and adults.
