We Put Youth
Our focus on youth programs fosters change across age groups and entire communities.
Our leadership is committed to preserving the traditions, languages and sanctity of American Indian communities.
We Help Where Needed Most
Rather than coming into a community and announcing what we will do, we listen to hear what our partners tell us they need.

Running Strong Changes Lives
Summer Youth Feeding Program
Running Strong has been providing free meals to local children on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation since June 1st through our Summer Youth Feeding Program. Every weekday, from now until August 7th, these children are guaranteed a fun and nutritious breakfast and lunch, which helps families make ends meet now that school is out of session.
