Who We Are

Our mission is to support the healthy development of children and youth in the Greater Mankato Area United Way service area through engagement in organized out-of-school time Youth Development and Youth Enrichment opportunities.

Connecting Kids is an organization funded by the Greater Mankato Area United Way and generous donations from other local organizations and foundations.
