  • 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 us at 952.922.0222 today.

Here’s what your investment can do: 

covers the travel costs to two retreats.

allows 30 students to attend a retreat.

allows 35 educators to attend a half-day workshop designed to build a cohesive and supportive community.

subsidizes the philanthropic share of two retreats, keeping our programs affordable for all of our schools.

helps YF develop new and innovative ways to sustain the impact of our retreats through evaluation, follow-up materials and social media.

subsidizes the philanthropic share of our YCorps internship program.

“If we hope to instill in our children and grandchildren a deep and abiding commitment to living good lives of integrity, we’re going to have to work together to ensure these values are still taught and still expected. After observing and hearing about the positive impact of Youth Frontiers from educators and students, it is my strong belief that every child in Omaha ought to be going through a Youth Frontiers retreat.”

“Youth Frontiers, through its impactful experiences, fortifies our kids’ behavioral health. These experiences help them discern how they can open up their hearts to their peers and their communities. Ultimately, the impact of this organization is helping parents raise socially and emotionally healthy children who are kind and empathic.”
