HHYD Overview


What Makes Us Unique:

We are concerned, because we love the community. We are hard working, because we are willing. We are faithful, because He will.
   Rev. Johnny Hunter

Hospitality House Youth Development’s Board of Directors, staff, volunteers and community partners work closely together to provide North Minneapolis residents the support and life training necessary to become independent, successful members of society.

All teachers at HHYD/Urban Learning Center are certified, and our tireless volunteers include professionals and college students who contribute many personal hours to fostering consistent relationships with our students to ensure that every child receives the attention and support he or she needs to excel in school and in life.

HHYD enjoys and participates in more than 70 different collaborations that include professional, church, community and family leaders.  We are proud and grateful for these supporters and strive every day to make the optimum use of their gifts that allow us to introduce the skills and tools necessary to encourage and change children’s behavior patterns to reflect good character, motivation, self-confidence and optimism.
