ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING IN-HOUSE SUMMER PROGRAMMING
Dear families, colleagues and friends of YoFES,
It's been a complicated and difficult past 15 months, but with COVID-19 vaccinations now widely available and the relaxation of mask and social distancing regulations, we are starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel here in Massachusetts. Here at YoFES, we're in awe of what our students, partners, staff, and organization as a whole have been able to accomplish during this unprecedented period in our history. We're so proud to have continued to create meaningful, positive change in our communities and we're forever grateful to the many helping hands who stepped up and made it all happen. That said, we've decided to take some time during the summer months to reset as we begin the transition towards re-entering a post pandemic world. Therefore, all regular in-house programming will be paused from June 14th through mid September. This means the Youth Builders Summer (YBS) Camp will not be running for the summer of 2021 and OAMEC lessons will be temporarily on hiatus. We thank you in advance for your understanding and encourage you to keep an eye out for registration announcements regarding fall programming.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the summer programming hiatus or another matter, please feel free to email us at or contact Mishella Etienne-Campbell.
Have a great summer!!!

Dr. Gabrielle Bercy-Roberson, M.D.
August 20th, 1966 - September 29th, 2020
Parent, Physician, Board Member, Friend
This year YoFES mourns the loss of one of its greatest supporters, Dr. Gabriel Bercy-Roberson. Dr. Bercy-Roberson believed in the power of music and how it could elevate children who needed it most. Because of her passion for children and her love for music, hundreds of Haitian Youth and Families benefited from her generosity over the past 17 years at YoFES. YoFES board and staff will miss her in her role as parent, advisor, and board member. May her memory be a blessing and may she rest in peace.
