    MY Place Mankato’s Mission

    MY Place, which opened in October of 2018, serves area youth Kindergarten to 8th grade when not in school. MY Place differentiates themselves by offering their after-school and summer programs free of charge. This eliminates barriers and gives all kids the opportunity to participate. They also provide transportation, meals, health supplies and academic programing. MY Place is committed to providing a nurturing environment that empowers youth to build the confidence, knowledge and skills needed to reach their full potential.

    MY Place provides youth in our community:

    • A safe and fun place to spend time and participate in positive programs, an alternative to the streets or being home alone.
    • Education support to improve academic performance and graduation rates.
    • Help to build new skills to raise their belief that they can success and recieve recognition for accomplishments.
    • The opportunity to build encouraging and on-going relationships with caring adults and connections to new friends in a positive environment.
    • A place that reinforces a sense of belonging, empowerment, personal accountability, civility and civic responsibility.
