    We want to share about a few local organizations doing great work throughout Lander.


    Wind River Dojo

    Wind River Dojo was founded in 2014. We are Lander’s only martial arts gym offering judo and jujitsu instruction to adults and children in our community. Our highly qualified instructors are all dedicated volunteers. Our Mission: Wind River Dojo provides highly accessible high-quality martial arts instruction for Fremont County. Earlier this year we had to relocate our facility. This resulted in big changes and a huge learning curve for our organization. Our new space required major remodeling, and in addition to our normal program equipment costs we now have new operation costs to support. We are excited to be chosen to participate in the 2024 C4C to help support these major shifts while still helping to keep costs for our current and future students as affordable as possible.

    Art Link Wyoming

    What are a few examples of what Art Link Wyoming delivers?
    We bring Missoula Children’s Theatre to town every fall, which casts up to 60 local K-8th graders to learn and present an adorable musical production (this year’s performance will be Sleeping Beauty, at LVHS Sept 21). We organize in-school performances and other music-related outreach for grades K-12, collaborating with Lander Performing Arts and their traveling professional artists whenever possible. We also collaborate with The Lander Art Center to offer creative workshops for homeschoolers, and to offer free acting classes for teens/adults (be sure to check out the session coming up on Wednesday evenings this summer)!

    Why donate to Art Link Wyoming?
    Art Link Wyoming delivers a variety of music & arts programming to Lander’s youth – almost entirely for free – so we rely on your generous C4C donations to succeed! Most of our programming is done within FCSD#1, but we also provide opportunities for alternative schools, homeschoolers, and the general public. Your C4C contributions help Art Link Wyoming cover general operating expenses, purchase a variety of art supplies, and provide fair compensation to our workshop teachers and performers. We often hire local talent, which fosters a valuable connection between Lander’s arts community and our amazing kids!
