Career + College Readiness for Every Student


Young people are our city’s most precious resource.

74% graphic

Minnesota has one of the country’s largest opportunity gaps in education and employment. And today, 74% of all jobs in the state will require post-secondary education. The stakes couldn’t be higher for our young people. 

Getting young people ready

As the strategic nonprofit partner of Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS), our shared goal is every student career and college ready. We mobilize community volunteers, employers, funders and partners to ensure that all students graduate with the tools, support and confidence they need to achieve their dreams.
