Mayor Coleman has played a huge role in supporting youth success through afterschool and summer opportunities during his three terms as Mayor. He created Sprockets, as an intermediary organization connecting youth programs across Saint Paul. He started the Saint Paul Youth Commission to bring youth voice to City Hall, and has expanded Right Track, the youth employment program in Saint Paul.

"I am honored to receive this award," said Mayor Coleman. "It is a recognition of the work of a community that has helped us develop quality out-of-school time programming in the city of Saint Paul...Let's keep on working on behalf of our children across this region."
