Child Care & Youth Programs

Youth Sports Programs

We believe in the power of sports and fitness to boost confidence, improve motor skills and create lifelong friendships. YWCA Minneapolis offers a variety of youth recreational programs throughout the year that do just that. From soccer to basketball, our athletic programs encourage participants to lead healthy lifestyles, work on their sportsmanship and teamwork skills, and make friends in a supportive environment.

Our anti-bias curriculum creates a supportive environment for our many participants. Programs are available for infants, toddlers and preschoolers.

Afterschool Youth Programs

Leave your children in good hands at one of our five high-quality afterschool or summer programs. Our curriculums seek to support and empower youth while encouraging the development of voice and leadership skills.
