About Us

Since 1974, YouthCARE has led ambitious multicultural youth development programs to empower youth in Minneapolis and St. Paul to thrive and lead. Through innovative programming and relationships with caring adults, participants find the support, education, and perspective to become global citizens and community leaders.


YouthCARE’s mission is to promote respect for self and others, develop future leaders, and provide youth with positive multicultural activities and relationships with caring adults.

YouthCARE Goals
