The Cuyuna Range Youth Center

Thank you so much for viewing our donation page and considering giving us a gift. Any donation is generous and helps us to better our community and the lives of our students.

As we move through the '23-'24 school year, we are looking to be a safe, fun, place for students to socialize and learn many life skills and lessons. Your support along with our local schools, businesses, additional volunteers, and dedicated staff and board members will help us accomplish out mission to provide a stable environment while empowering youth to make positive life decisions. 

A major goal moving into the next year or two is to increase our open hours by approximately 8 hours per week and hire additional, committed staff members. We also want to implement a new program called Rachel's Challenge . This program is free. However, funding would help us hire additional staff to implement it, increase our hours for it, and purchase various products to promote it.

Thank you so much!

A few additions to CRYC include:

  • Additional art/painting materials

  • Several new board games (constantly adding more)

  • Cooking programs (students learn food prep and cooking)

  • 6th grade able to take the bus to CRYC after school!

  • Monday after school program for 4th and 5th grade. Working on getting this to be every Monday night.

  • Additional tables and seating.

  • More community outreach through programs such as Community Kindness Days.

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 3:30pm-8:00pm on Thursday, 3:30-9:00pm on Friday and 4:00-9:00pm 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
  • New programming to help better our community and build up our students
    • Rachel's Challenge

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!!
