Beacons at Sullivan

The Beacons program is an after school program for students in grades K-8 attending Anne Sullivan Communication Center.  Beacons is run by the South Minneapolis YMCA in partnership with Minneapolis Public Schools.

This program is free to all participants, and runs Monday-Thursday,
3:00-5:30 p.m.  Buses are available to take students home at the end of the program. 

There are three separate units within the program:  K-2nd grade, 3rd-5th grade, and Middle School (6-8).

Please feel free to call the Beacons’ Office with any questions at 612.668.5003.  We look forward to catching up with returning students and getting to know new ones as well!
