Find out how children in Minneapolis are doing as we review key indicators of health, safety and achievement.
To keep our goals for Minneapolis youth on track, the YCB created the Call to Action Report Card. It assesses how Minneapolis children and youth are doing now, and outlines our objectives to improve their well-being for the future. Our hope is that each person who reads the Call to Action Report Card will engage in our mission.
The YCB is committed to these goals for children and youth, but we can’t achieve them alone. We need community-wide support—everyone from policymakers to parents. The first step is to learn more about the overall condition of Minneapolis youth.
