Support Youth Empowerment in North Minneapolis

by Venture North Bike Walk Center


Redeemer Center for Life creates programs that empower and educate youth in North Minneapolis. Through the Redeemer After-School Program (RAP), the Redeemer Music Academy (RMAA), the Housing and Transition program (HAT), and Venture North Bike & Coffee Shop, young people have a rich array of opportunities for hands-on learning, leadership development, job skill training, and preparation for healthy, happy futures.

Harrison is a diverse North Minneapolis neighborhood of approximately 3,200 residents. The community faces many challenges, including an unemployment rate of 14.3% (over double the city-wide average of 6.6%) and 42% of residents living below the poverty line.


The Harrison neighborhood has identified youth development as priority, and RCFL is deeply engaged in working to create youth enrichment opportunities that, through relationship, tutoring, empowerment, education, and skill development, begin to narrow or eliminate the large achievement gap.

Long-Term Impact

The project will allow RCFL to continue providing high quality youth programming. Funds help support the participation of young people who would not otherwise have resources to afford similar educational and skill development opportunities.
