Three Organizations, One Amazing Mission

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

YouthPort was created to provide a referral network between each organization’s programs & services. The result was fewer barriers for families in need so resources were easily accessible.


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