Description: Young Ethnic Scholars, also known as Y.E.S, is a club that brought together students of color and allies of the Wellesley community. This group was founded after decades of students of color, especially Black students, experiencing systemic and individualized racism in Wellesley. Y.E.S looks to establish itself as an integral part of the academic community at Wellesley High School and the greater community. We are looking to work towards the general acceptance of diversity, equality, and inclusion across all races, genders, and creeds within each layer of the Wellesley community for years to come.
