Youth Challenge brings together young people with physical disabilities and teen volunteers through adapted sports, recreation and social growth activities.
At Youth Challenge (YC), we believe that, despite one’s limitations, everyone has the right to play, learn, make friends, have fun, and enjoy life in a safe, welcoming environment! YC provides over 300 year-round activities where participants with disabilities are paired one-on-one with trained teen volunteers. Whether a participant needs help tossing a football or holding a paintbrush, the partners work together to complete activities. Programming helps participants exercise and gain physical skills while also providing a way to bring peers of all abilities together for socialization, support, and friendship. All programs, including transportation, are provided at no cost to the families of those with disabilities.
You can support Youth Challenge today by taking part in Patton Painting’s To-Do List Campaign. Through December 31, 2022, Patton Painting will donate $10 to Youth Challenge for each to-do list inquiry AND completed consultation, up to $5,000! Click here to contact them today, get your painting needs covered, and give back to YC! Plus, Patton Painting will be raffling off 5 Painter-for-a-Day certificates to anyone who submits an inquiry during the campaign (a $500 value!). No purchase is necessary to launch a donation to Youth Challenge.
