At Phyllis Wheatley Community Center, we work to create educational, recreational, and restorative learning opportunities for the people who live in our North Minneapolis neighborhoods and the greater Twin Cities area. 

Our services evolve quickly, always adapting and changing to keep pace with the ever-changing needs of our community.

Our goal — To provide families with access to critical early childhood education, information and resources that exist to help, career skills training, and educational opportunities that can stabilize lives.


Today, Phyllis Wheatley Community Center provides a number of culturally responsive, quality programs that provide lifelong learning opportunities and family services for children, teens, and adults. Our commitment to our neighbors' empowerment and belief in their many talents are what drive us, and our mission, each day. 

We create pathways for individuals to discover their strengths and take control of their futures.

Phyllis Wheatley Community Center is a Guidestar Platinum for Transparency organization.
