YouthCARE (Cultural Appreciation & Racial Equality)

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 conducts three primary youth development programs for Minneapolis and St. Paul youth, 6-18 years old; Camp Sunrise, YouthLEAD, and the Young Women’s Mentoring Program. All three of these programs operate year round and are designed to reach youth with high quality multicultural activities during out-of-school-time hours. YouthCARE’s youth development work is focused in the areas of youth employment and leadership, outdoor appreciation, science and environmental education, mentoring, and positive social, cultural and recreational activities that bring together youth from diverse ethnic, cultural and racial backgrounds.
