Three Organizations, One Amazing Mission

What happens when you combine Tanager Place, Boys & Girls Clubs of Cedar Rapids, and YPN? Amazing things!

YouthPort was created to provide a referral network between the programs & services that each organization provides; and to break down barriers for families in need to make resources easily accessible.


YouthPort originally launched as a pilot program in 2012, after the closing of a northeast Cedar Rapids school. After witnessing so much success with the pilot program, Tanager Place, Boys & Girls Clubs of Cedar Rapids and YPN created a formal agreement to continue the collaboration and YouthPort was born, giving our community greater access to resources.
