Education & Learning
Focus Area: Youthprise
Through our support of Youthprise, we strengthen leadership, innovation and systems to increase access to high-quality learning beyond the classroom.
In 2011, McKnight helped establish Youthprise, a new youth funding partner based in the Twin Cities. The stated mission of the organization is to champion learning beyond the classroom so that all Minnesota's youth thrive. All new McKnight investments in this field are managed by Youthprise.
NOTE: McKnight no longer accepts new requests for funding in the former out-of-school time program area.
