A Time of Thanksgiving: The People of Central Oregon

Recently we calculated the value of our yearly in-kind donations…what we found is that we receive over $26,000 per year in non-cash support. This is the power of people who believe in their community! Most of this value comes from the people of Central Oregon who generously give their time and talents to volunteer, mentor, teach, and provide meals for our youth. To them we say “THANK YOU!”

Thank you also to the parents and caretakers who trust us with their children, and to those who encourage us with their words. Last, but not least, thank you to our fabulous board of directors, who volunteer their time to lead Central Oregon Youth Development, Inc.!


Having fun is part of mentoring!

Sew much fun!


Building healthy relationships is key to successful mentoring.
