Sabathani Community Center's mission is to provide people of all ages and cultures with essential resources that inspire them to improve their lives and build a thriving community.
Sabathani is a multi-service community center serving south central Minneapolis. We own and operate the former Bryant Junior High School building. In addition to our four programs, 35-40 other non-profit and/or government agencies provide service in this building. Our programs are:

Participants are assisted with reading, writing, math, STEAM curriculum, and computer skills, as well as social, emotional and educational development. Enrichment activities include drama, art, and field trips.
