Youth and Family Enrichment Services is a non-profit organization founded in 2003. Our mission is to build strong families that can raise healthy children in the face of poverty and social inequities. How? We create interventions that engage community participation in the conception, design, development and implementation of our programs. Open Access to Music Education for Children is the flagship program of YOFES located in Hyde Park, MA. Youth and Family Enrichment Services (YOFES) is a non-profit organization serving communities facing multiple barriers including lack of access to arts education. The majority of our students come from Haitian immigrant families. Our music students have performed for the Governor of Massachusetts, the Haitian Consulate in Boston, and have collaborated with programs and students from the New England Conservatory as well as Berklee College of Music. Many of our program principles are rooted in the El Sistema approach to music education.
