Three Organizations, One Amazing Mission

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

Through YouthPort, our three organizations have combined efforts and united missions, helping families in need in the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City corridor.  The goal of YouthPort is to maximize the strengths and resources of the organizations involved, empowering them to meet the needs of children and families in low-economic neighborhoods throughout Cedar Rapids.


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 program and YouthPort was born, giving our community greater access to resources.


Together our organizations will work together to enhance and strengthen our communities, one family at a time. Want to join us? Become a corporate sponsor, share your passion as a volunteer or donate. Need assistance? Email us and we’ll be happy to help!
