YouthPort member organizations pool resources to offer services that help build a stronger community. Our programs are created to meet specific neighborhood needs and provide children and families with:
YouthPort – Three Organizations. One Mission.
All programs are designed by child development experts to meet the needs of children of all ages and are centered around family involvement and education. The three member organizations include:
Boys & Girls Club of Cedar Rapids

Offers a prenatal and parenting group at Polk Alternative Education Center. The group meets weekly, and participants enjoy an evening meal. The network also holds quarterly family events such as the Fall Family Fun Fest.
