Everything we do is built on Five Promises

About Us

Youth First Community of Promise is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that actively engages youth, their families, and the community to ensure youth have the resources, skills, and support they need to transition successfully into the next step of their lives.


ALL our programs and services are based on FIVE PROMISES to youth providing a safe and nurturing environment for young people to learn, grow, and thrive.


Our Programs

We primarily serve at-risk or underserved middle and high school youth who either live in or attend school in Andover, Anoka, Coon Rapids and Ramsey.  

During the school year we provide academic support as well as out-of-school time (OST) activities and field trips on school release days.  In the summer, you will find us at our Youth Center in Ramsey hosting fun and engaging activities, learning opportunities, and field trips.


Our programs focus on learning success, healthy minds and bodies, and engagement in a healthy, supportive community.  



“At the end of the day it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished… it’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.”
— Denzel Washington
