When Donna Sorensen and her late husband, Andrew, asked their sons how they wanted to give back to Chautauqua, the Sorensen boys were unanimous in their decision to support the Youth Activities Center.

In 1985, the Sorensens established the Youth Activities Center Endowment to support the facility that their sons, Aaron and Ben, used often during their time growing up at Chautauqua.

“It’s a place where kids can meet other kids and begin building relationships that will bring them back to Chautauqua for future summers,” Ben said.
