About Us

How We're Helping


We are a community-based organization focused on enlisting all sectors of our community in helping youth achieve social and economic self-sufficiency, and fulfill their potential as viable contributing members of the community.

Community Needs


We're aiming to provide free-time activities for youth outside of school, organized sports and other school-sponsored extracurricular activities, and to interact with community leaders and businesses to promote local employment opportunities to develop a future workforce and to increase retention of Crookston youth. 

Get Involved


Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! Whether you'd like to help through monetary donations or volunteering your time or services to make a youth center a reality, we're always looking for others to help us make our vision a reality. We'd love for you to be involved and we'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. 

Our Vision


We are a grassroots group of citizens and community leaders who are working to develop a package of services, programs, and activities for youth in our community.


We envision a community in which youth and young adults successfully navigate their living, as well as their personal and professional relationships, and they excel in the workplace and engage in the community.

Charitable Organization

The CYF is a charitable organization and all programming and other developments are being built with no expectation of city or government funding. 

Matching Funds

We have already secured donors that have pledged a significant amount of funds for the Youth Center project. We will continue to seek additional matching funds from the community.

Youth Board

A board of youth will work alongside our managing board to provide significant input into programming and facilities and help shape activities and services provided by the Foundation.

Youth Center

We envision a center of operations that will serve as a focal point for programs, services, activities, and social connection in the community.
