Are you ready to Take the Helm for the students of Grand Rapids?

Join Captain H. Tanny and crew in Taking the Helm for the youth of Grand Rapids! Every donation helps the Creative Youth Center empower students to amplify their voices and broaden their curiosity.

Consider a donation of $25/month. With your support we can:

  • Expand our programming to serve more students

  • Keep programs free for kids

  • Help more creative youth become published authors

To ensure we are able to keep our programs free and to expand to more GRPS students, this summer we are asking our community to give a little extra. Our goal is to raise $50,000 by the end of the 2017-2018 school year. Help us meet our goal by donating today.
