Youthworks is a private, nonprofit agency with a Board of Directors. The agency was established in 1979 and we have been providing direct services since 1986 in Bismarck and 1991 in Fargo. We also serve the surrounding counties in both North Dakota and Minnesota. Our focus and expertise is in working with teens, parents and young adults under 22 years of age. Most of our services are referral based and free. When there is a charge it is based on a family’s ability to pay.
We provide services for runaway, homeless and street youth; juvenile offenders; youth failing in school; youth suspended or expelled from school; young parents and pregnant moms (under 22); youth arrested and unable to immediately return home; youth needing emergency care: youth needing peer support or cross-age mentoring; and youth with anger issues. We provide family counseling during the day and in the evening at the convenience of the parents. Youthworks also provides activity programs through its Activity Center and the summer Teen Tour program in Bismarck and its Romkey Park and summer program in Fargo. Youthworks AmeriCorps program provides college students with training and experience in working with youth and Youthworks also trains high school students in providing peer support.
