Welcome to
the Switch Yard

Bancroft Youth Unlimited!

THANK YOU! We are extremely grateful for the generosity of everyone who participated in the Back on Track campaign. It is so encouraging to see our community join together to support The Switch Yard once again.

We are pleased to announce that we were able to surpass our initial fundraising goal of $10,000, with a TOTAL SO FAR OF $17,032.75 being raised! This comes very close to covering our budget shortfall and truly gives us some much needed relief to our financial situation.

We are overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of our community, even in the midst of these very difficult times. Thank you for supporting the Switch Yard and allowing us to get “Back on Track” with the youth of Bancroft without hesitation or hindrance.
