This year, we’ll celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Cheyenne River Youth Project. The quarter-century mark is not only a celebration of what a community can do for itself, but also major milestone on the way to an even brighter future.
“It’s not common for a community-based not-for-profit to last this long, and to be serving its second generation of children,” said Julie Garreau, our executive director. “It doesn’t happen often in Indian Country, but it happened here, and we want to make sure we remain a stable, positive presence for the generations of children to come. So we’re taking some big steps.”
