Who We Are
The Gateway Youth Group (GYG) is a community-based non-profit organization working with youth in the Gallatin Gateway, Montana community. We are a 501c3 established in 1998 through a grant by the Turner Foundation as part of the Turner Youth Initiative.

What We Do & Why
We provide programs, scholarships, community service and fundraising activities for the Gallatin Gateway community to fulfill our mission year-round.  GYG provides opportunities for youth to learn, to develop leadership skills, and to engage in community service through projects, programs, and fun activities. As GYG mentors, we serve as positive role models and offer guidance. We encourage participation in events and activities that help youth learn, become engaged, and grow as individuals and future community leaders.
