Ensuring Positive Youth Development

The Amherst H. Wilder Foundation provides a variety of school-based programs to improve student achievement and support positive functioning among Saint Paul youth. Each program is designed specifically for the community it serves. Wilder's partnership with Achievement Plus schools are focused on providing comprehensive educational opportunities for low socio-economic areas of the city. Kofi Services and Hlub Zoo are both culturally specific, school-based programs that promote positive cultural and self-identify and, ultimately, greater school success.
