YC provides adapted sports and recreation programs to over 200 young people,
ages 3-18, with physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, blindness/visual impairments, and others.
We offer more than 400 free, year-round activities throughout Northeast Ohio. All programs are carefully adapted to meet the special needs of each child and are created to safely challenge appropriate age and skill levels.
YC receives help from 450+ teen volunteers, ages 12-18, who are trained seasonally by professionals to assist and engage with their peers who have physical disabilities.
You can find links to local and national organizations that provide services for people with physical disabilities.
Youth Challenge brings together young people with physical disabilities and teen volunteers who inspire each other through adapted sports, recreation and social growth activities.
Only with your Annual Fund Gift can young lives be changed in extraordinary ways.
