“Dedicated to the Academic & Social Success of All Children”


WE WIN Institute (WE WIN) is a nonprofit, community-based organization dedicated to the mission of creating academic and social success for all children.  Our programs are designed to instill pride, confidence, academic, and social skills in children; by giving them knowledge and experiences that honor and celebrate their cultural roots.

WE WIN provides a safe and nurturing environment for young people, while working to increase parental involvement in the lives of their children and their schools.  We give youth in our program a base of knowledge in core subjects, and help them develop the skills they need to grow into successful, responsible adults.  Our programs focus on giving children and their families tools to create long-term and systemic change in their lives and communities.

WE WIN was founded in 1995 by Titilayo Bediako, a Minneapolis Public Schools teacher. It began with one program and 25 children; it has now grown to serve 250+ youth annually; with more than 4,000 children served to date. Our programs are focused on children ages 5-18, who live in Minneapolis and surrounding areas.
