Child Care & Youth Programs

Our high-quality Early Childhood Education program provides engaging, holistic early learning environments for infant to school-age children. All YWCA Children’s Centers are NAEYC-accredited and employ highly trained teachers — enabling us to offer some of the best care and education opportunities for children in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Through stimulating activities, nutritious food and an anti-bias curriculum, YWCA nurtures positive social-emotional and academic habits in children to help them succeed in school and life.

YWCA Minneapolis offer Girls and Youth programs that prepare youth to be learners, leaders and creators of change. These programs empower youth to hone their leadership and decision-making skills, adopt healthier and more active lifestyles, pursue their academic interests in the science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) fields and much more. Most importantly, these afterschool and summer programs use culturally responsive, research-based curriculum that supports youths’ voices and empowers them to lead, be resilient and thrive.

Making a Difference. That’s the Difference.™

Racial Justice & Public Policy

YWCA Minneapolis is a trusted social justice organization that promotes racial equity and works to build a community of changemakers. We bring people together through facilitated dialogues, community workshops and signature events that help people have constructive, meaningful conversations about race — and most importantly, learn how to take action toward positive social change in their lives. We believe in the power of democracy and offer ways for people to advocate for meaningful causes, learn how government systems work and become more engaged residents.

We also offer Inc.lude™ Equity and Inclusion Consulting, a service designed to help businesses create more diverse and positive working environments for their employees. Inc.lude provides detailed diversity, inclusion and equity training programs to nurture better employee dynamics, support collaboration, and ultimately, improve productivity.
