We're here to help students make a plan for life after graduation!

AchieveMpls believes in the power of career and postsecondary readiness to enable young people to imagine and live rewarding lives. We also recognize the value in every path to personal and economic well-being and success and prioritize services for students who face systemic barriers to education and career opportunities.

Our eleven Minneapolis Career & College Centers and eight Saint Paul Career Pathway Centers help students chart their career course and make a plan for success after graduation—whether that means college, technical training, apprenticeships, work or other opportunities. We also track individual student progress to ensure that every senior has a plan. 

We're a highly experienced team of career and college readiness professionals.

Our staff include licensed school counselors, teachers, and social workers. We bring extensive experience in helping students develop the best postsecondary plans for their individual career and life goals.

Career Readiness Initiative

Our Career Readiness Initiative — embedded in all of our Career & College Centers — provides in-depth career advising on a wide range of postsecondary opportunities, including two and four-year college, technical training, apprenticeships, on-the-job training and more. We help bridge the gap between students who are seeking purposeful, life-sustaining careers and opportunities with Twin Cities employers.
