PROGRAMS

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

For nearly 100 years, Phyllis Wheatley Community Center has been a cornerstone of the North Minneapolis community. We provide services and programs to all people seeking resources and education in our majority-African American neighborhoods.

 

Our programming is designed to nurture the development of mind, body, spirit, family, and community, with a goal of helping people build the skills they need not just to get by, but to thrive.
