Share What You Know!

You can help introduce students to all of the great careers available in our community! 

Our career exploration events at Minneapolis and Saint Paul public high schools are a great way to inspire and support students as they plan for life after graduation. 

Whether you work in the trades, business, healthcare, the arts, STEM, government or another sector, you have valuable experience and perspectives that can help students take the first step toward great careers or discover new fields. 

During COVID19, volunteer for our virtual career panels, where you can share your personal career journey and the skills and training required for your field.

All volunteers are welcome! We especially encourage volunteers from diverse communities, MPS alumni and community members with personal connections to our schools.

Join our mailing list and keep an eye on our events calendar to learn about upcoming opportunities.  

“AchieveMpls career events are a great opportunity for students to learn about all the careers available to them. Most students have an understanding of what being a doctor or a lawyer means. But they may not know what an account executive, a machinist, a project manager or a cosmetologist does, or the opportunities for growth and financial prosperity that these careers can provide.”
