Community or Constituency Served PCYC's primary community/constituency is the community of North Minneapolis, which is the population served by our PYC Arts & Tech High School and our AfterSchool elementary programming and Youth Development programs. However, an additional and growing constituency are artists and Capri Theater patrons, who come from across the Twin cities region. Other nonprofits and community members who use our facilities including renting the Capri are also part of our constituency. Lastly, our corporate church members and our donors and friends are also served by PCYC, in that we provide a means and a place for them to live out their values by being of service to others.
Geographic Area Served North Minneapolis for some programs, but regional for our Capri Theater
