Supporting the Youth of La Crosse!
The Youth Enrichment Association (YEA) is a nonprofit organization which generates funds for equipment, uniforms, and special events to serve the La Crosse Youth through quality Recreation Programs sponsored by the La Crosse Parks & Recreation Department.
What does YEA do?
- Plays an integral role in providing opportunities for youth (9,000 in 2007), families, and neighbors to interact with one another
- Works in collaboration with the City of La Crosse Recreation Department in providing quality recreation services to the community
- Provides an opportunity for all youth to make healthy lifetime choices
YEA is the recipient of the 2006 Wisconsin Park and Recreation Association Partnership Award.
YEA meets once a month to discuss the needs of youth recreation programs and to prepare for our upcoming fundraisers. We are looking for individuals that would like to help the youth of La Crosse and at the same time have fun. Based on our increasing number of participants and positive feedback from parents, we feel we have made a difference in offering quality recreational programs for kids.
If you have any questions, please contact the La Crosse Parks and Recreation Department at (608) 789-7533.
