Support Youth Challenge

Your support plays a significant role in the future of Youth Challenge.

Youth Challenge provides free transportation and programs, so we rely on the generosity of individuals, businesses, community organizations, and foundations to fund our services.  With your support, Youth Challenge can continue to bring together young people with physical disabilities and teen volunteers to experience unique opportunities through adapted sports and recreation activities.

There are many ways to support YC. Learn more below!
