Youth Development The Wheatley’s youth development programs are designed to help students meet or exceed academic progress goals by working in collaboration with a network of parents, teachers, and volunteers to achieve long-term success. Efforts have helped Bethune School students make progress on their Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments. Strategic partnerships with Hamline University’s Center for Excellence in Urban Teaching, The Mentoring Partnership of Minnesota and Minneapolis Public Schools among others are making a measurable impact on academic progress for underperforming students. Family Strengthening Family development programs strengthen parenting and family leadership skills to foster strong families. The Wheatley’s programs build upon participants’ personal strengths by providing intensive support and assistance in developing life skills such as goal-setting, planning, communication, establishing healthy relationships, parenting choices, financial management, and conflict resolution. Program participants identify and build their own networks of support and are connected with appropriate community resources including affordable housing opportunities, training for higher-wage jobs, and support in meeting the personal and family stability goals participants set for themselves.
