The Tokata Youth Center is focused on transforming the lives of Native American youth in Fort Thompson, South Dakota. Diamond Willow Ministries helps youth at the Center find the connection with their rich history and empower them to imagine their future and reach for it.
This new space includes a large game room, multi use space for gym activities or socializing, a classroom and commercial kitchen, providing dinners during the school year with the addition of lunches during the summer. The center is constructed of pre-cast panels, provided by a local company, which were used in the design primarily for quality control, expedited construction (which equates to a lower cost for the client) and for their ability to be placed year-round.
Phase II of the center is under design and will include a gymnasium and 2 additional classrooms.
