The Grand Rapids Creative Youth Center prepares kids for life’s adventures by supporting their writing and amplifying their voices.
We believe that while nurturing kids’ writing can give them access to the world, fostering their creativity may allow them to change the world.
At the CYC, kids become published authors, leading to a strong sense of identity and an enthusiasm for learning. Our programs are free for all students attending Grand Rapids Public Schools or living in Grand Rapids.
The CYC IS HIRING! We are seeking candidates to fill 2 part time teaching positions for our 1st and 2nd and High School classes starting in the Winter term. Please send resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday December 6 at noon to be considered for an interview.
Spoken Word + Music – The Animations
The Pasta Problem – Creative Thoughts Podcast
The CYC offers several sponsorship opportunities throughout the year. We love working with local businesses, book clubs, churches, and more! Please get in touch for more information at email@example.com.
We’re Grateful to Past & Current Funders & Sponsors!
