The North Arkansas Youth Center is excited to announce our “Building the Future” campaign! With the help of Mayor Caradine and the City of Cotter, we were recently awarded a $50,000 grant that will help us to begin refurbishing our multi-purpose outdoor courts. The project will allow for construction of tennis, pickleball, and basketball courts. Our hope is to begin construction in 2020. This outdoor structure will meet requirements set forth by the ADA allowing for inclusiveness of all within our community. THE COST OF THE PROJECT IS $80,000, WE NEED TO RAISE AN ADDITIONAL $30,000 IN FUNDS TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT! THIS IS A BENEFIT FOR THE WHOLE CITY OF COTTER!
SPECIAL THANKS: OUR FRIENDS, PETER & JAN PEITZ. THEY HAVE PLEDGED MATCHING FUNDS OF UP TO $10,000! WE TRULY APPRECIATE THEIR SUPPORT AND CONTRIBUTION TO COTTER AND THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES!
The North Arkansas Youth Center is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization committed to serving and uniting the Cotter community. The North Arkansas Youth center supports Youth of ALL Ages by generating community spirit, promoting community involvement, raising funds, and also recognizing community needs. We strive to foster an environment that promotes healthy lifestyles; encourages healthy relationships with family and peers; promotes education; deters use of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs and provides a safe environment for youth who might otherwise be left unsupervised.
We started a fundraising campaign earlier in the year, but due to the Covid19 Pandemic, our fundraising efforts have been slowed considerably. Now we need to act in order to save the grant money, or we could possibly lose the funds if not used by year end. Summertime 2020 construction is crucial for this project.
