Minneapolis Beacons Centers

Minneapolis Beacons Centers turn schools into youth centers afterschool and in the summer, providing youth programs free of charge that include leadership development, academic support, arts, sports, and fun with Beacons staff and mentors! Beacons engages youth as learners and leaders by partnering with youth, families, schools, and communities.

Beacons is a partnership of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities, Minneapolis Community Education, the YMCA of Minneapolis, and the YWCA of Minneapolis.

The Beacons programs are also funded by The General Mills Foundation, United Way, and Youthprise.
