It is mid-May and we think spring has finally arrived. PCYC is looking forward to many exciting events this spring and summer. In that spirit, we are sharing the Spring Letter that our Executive Director Anne Long sent recently to PCYC friends and supporters. We hope you will be inspired to act by the Spring Letter and become a new friend of PCYC.
You can read Anne’s letter here and we thank you for renewing the hope in our work with the youth of North Minneapolis. Spring 2013 letter to Friends of PCYC
If you have walked from the PCYC parking lot or along the north side of 23rd Avenue North, you may have noticed this pretty box on a wooden post.
It is PCYC’s own Little Free Library. Yes, the books are free! The little library has different types of books. Do stop by anytime to choose a title that stirs your interest. Just remember to put back another book the next time!
The goal is to encourage our scholars, families, and neighbors to read. PYC Arts & Tech High School teacher, Maureen Mulvaney, was the driving force in getting this free library for our campus. Since its installation in early winter, our Little Free Library has been re-stocked several times. Children’s books are disappearing faster than other titles. That’s good news and, if this trend continues, we may indeed grow more readers.
When spring arrives, the decorations on our Little Free Library will reflect the abundant gardens behind it. Do check out the books in this pretty little box in the mean time. Our thanks to Maureen and all readers for making reading a public, communal, and enjoyable act!

Effective partnerships and collaborations are an example of how PCYC successfully carries out its commitment to address community challenges head-on through its programs and services for youth and their families.
One of the toughest challenges PCYC works hard to address is the low academic achievement of students, particularly among students of color and those from low income families. PCYC’s strong record in preparing young people for greater academic and life success has increasingly garnered public recognition. Given its longstanding history in this area, PCYC’s newest role as a partner with the Northside Achievement Zone (NAZ) is a natural partnership to strengthen the work of both organizations in North Minneapolis.
This collaboration caught the attention of the U.S. Department of Education which awarded NAZ a five-year $28 million Promise Neighborhood grant in December 2011 to expand the work that it has started with children and families in the Zone.
