45% Donor Support
55% School Share
We want every school — private, public, charter or parochial — to be able to afford Youth Frontiers retreats. Schools pay 55 percent of the retreat cost and the philanthropic support of individuals, foundations and corporations covers the remaining 45 percent. This model keeps retreat costs affordable for schools while keeping schools vested. It also allows communities to participate financially in the character development of the next generation. To visit a retreat and see our mission in motion, please contact Lynn Giovannelli at 952.922.0222 today.

“Few organizations are doing as much as Youth Frontiers to create the next generation of leaders who have the integrity and moral courage our society so desperately needs. Every employer in this community has a vested interest in supporting YF’s efforts to raise kids that are good as well as smart.”
“At my first Youth Frontiers Courage Retreat visit, I saw kids literally transform during the course of the day. The well-developed retreat content and the skill of the staff clearly resonated with the kids who stepped up at the end of the retreat with clear, courageous goals. As a children’s healthcare professional, I know that the health of a child is not just physical, it is also mental and emotional. Youth Frontiers is helping us develop healthy children.”
