Beacons After School Program

Minneapolis Beacons engages youth as leaders and learners by transforming schools into active youth centers afterschool and in the summer, providing free high quality educational, recreational, and leadership development activities opportunities to nearly 4,000 kindergarten–12th grade youth and their families at our 12 Beacons Centers located in neighborhoods in North, Northeast, and South Minneapolis. The Minneapolis Beacons Network is a collaborative initiative between schools, community, and families with the mission to improve academic, social, and lifework development of youth in low-income communities.
