The Cuyuna Range Youth Center

These past couple of years have had tremendous impact on all of us. Potentially the most widely impacted group have been teenagers and young adults who are still learning and developing. Approximately 70% of students AND those who are now young adults have had to adapt to persistent change and uncertainty so much so that it has, to many, become a new normal. In a world of uncertainty, teens are looking for a constant. The Cuyuna Range Youth Center is that constant which serves teens without discrimination, and it has become like a warm and welcoming home to many students. Teenagers come to the Youth Center to feel safe, or because they are hungry, or to hang out with friends, or share their life with trusted adults and volunteers.  Where would these kids be without the Cuyuna Range Youth Center? Many of them would be on the streets. Some hungry. Alone. In trouble. 

A gift to CRYC would provide critical supports, such as: 

  • Vital cleaning supplies to maintain a safe, clean, and sanitized place for out youth to gather.
  • A healthy meal.
  • Basic hygiene products.
  • A trusted adult to receive guidance and support from relating to school, work, and everyday life.

The Youth Center is open 4:00pm-8:00pm on Thursday and 4:00-9:00pm on Friday and Saturday to all students in grades 6-12. Programming at CRYC is free of charge to all youth. It's a place for youth to engage in art, games, sports, cooking, and other recreational activities they may otherwise not have access to. Programming includes:

  • Art Night
  • Movie Night
  • Game Night
  • Professional Guest Speakers
  • Volunteering
  • Cooking

Your gift will help the Cuyuna Range Youth Center continue to provide a safe, fun place for youth to develop trusting, healthy mentoring relationships with adults which is especially important during these times. Many of our youth are still experiencing hardship and extra stress in their life as a result from the impact of these past two years. Not only does our program aim to provide a safe place for youth but also helps provide stability in their life, healthy food options, guidance in life and school, and recreational activities they may otherwise not have access to. The ultimate goal of our program is to guide youth to be kind, respectful and socially responsible in a recreational environment while building life and leadership skills. The team at the Center believes it takes a village to raise healthy (mind, body, spirit) teens. We want you to be a part of our village and help our youth become successful young adults!!
