Our Mission:

The Be@School Program builds a strong network of support to promote the academic success of elementary and middle school youth.

We partner with youth, families, schools and Hennepin County to build a strong network of support for youth.

By increasing school attendance and improving community connections, Be@School helps students stay on track for high school graduation and success in their lives.

Be@School provides culturally centered programming that supports the development of a strong identity in youth. Summer activities at Centro Tyrone Guzman provide opportunities to build long-lasting relationships with mentors.

Centro Tyrone Guzman’s Be@School is the only certified Latino program of its kind in Minneapolis.

Children who are falling behind in school receive individualized support to improve their attendance through partnerships with the Hennepin County Attorney’s Oce and Minneapolis Public Schools. Families are supported with knowledge, skills and resources to help their child succeed.


Our Impact

  • 69% of children improved attendance.

  • 56% of children had no unexcused absences while participating in the program.
