Lester Prairie Youth Task Force

Our group consists of pastors from all the area churches, business representatives, police, school administration, student liaisons and community members who would like to encourage our youth/young adults to make good choices, have someone they can talk to if needed and offer them activities that are fun, safe and positive. If there is a tragedy or life changing events for the kids, we are available. We hope to prevent: bullying, school drop-out rates and depression/suicide. We hope to offer: positive reinforcements, activities and hope. We hope that the younger generation can trust the older generations and learn from them.

What do we do?
We are feeding the kids 6th grade- 12th grade one lunch a month and each month a different person gives a life lesson. We have a different location each month too. We have had meals at the churches, city hall, school and the park. We have anywhere between 130-160 kids/month that we feed.
We would like to do at least one activity a month for the kids that would include some encouragement to them.

We rely completely on donations from various entities. We are looking at doing some fundraisers this next year as our numbers grow in participation.

If you would like to join the program, have an idea or would like to donate please contact Fred Holasek at 320-395-2780 or Christine Mattson at 320-395-3002 and
