• Saint Paul Early Learning Coalition banner

The mission of the North End Early Learning Coalition is to engage and connect local organizations and individuals to promote the learning, health, safety and well-being of children and families in the community.

  • Welcome to the North End Early Learning Coalition

    “North End’s Early Learning Coalition is open to all North End residents, business owners, and community organizations who want to increase access to food, especially healthier options. We meet monthly to share resources, plan events, and work toward our long-term goal of fighting food insecurity. While the group focuses on families with young children, we know that our work can and does affect all our neighbors. This is a great opportunity for those looking to get more involved in the community to share thoughts and ideas with others who care about the North End!"

    Written by Quentin West, [former] Basic Needs Manager at Keystone on Rice Street.
