CRYP’s 2012 College Night Program Will Continue Through Mid-May
Spring is officially here, and the Alternative Spring Break season is in full swing at the Cheyenne River Youth Project® in Eagle Butte. Starting in late February, volunteer groups from universities and colleges around the country started traveling to the 2.8-million-acre Cheyenne River reservation to spend their spring breaks at the 23-year-old, not-for-profit youth organization.
These young men and women are working with Cheyenne River’s teens and children, they are holding fundraisers, they’re helping with facilities maintenance at the Cokata Wiconi Teen Center and The Main Youth Center, and they’re preparing the 2-acre, naturally grown Winyan Toka Win Garden for planting. But that’s not all — each student group also is hosting a “College Night” for the community.
