The CROYA Adult Board includes residents from Lake Forest and Lake Bluff, school personnel, and three of the High School Executive Committee Members. The Adult Board functions as a resource to the CROYA staff and youth, providing guidance and support when needed to ensure continued success with youth-initiated programs. Board Members are appointed by the City of Lake Forest Mayor and the Lake Bluff Village President.
The CROYA Foundation (a 501c3) was formed in 2004 with the original goal of raising private dollars for the construction of the Student Union (completed September 2007). Today, the CROYA Foundation raises additional funds to support ongoing CROYA programs, and to add programs to serve the needs of an ever-growing population of local teens.
