Learn how you can support programs like Career Academies and other innovative solutions.
Through intentional, innovative education, low-income youth and youth of color in the greater Twin Cities will have clear pathways to wealth-building careers with zero college debt.
Minnesota’s achievement gaps indicate we are not successfully preparing Black, Indigenous and Youth of Color for future success. By bringing a proven career pathways approach to local school districts, we can reduce disparate educational outcomes, close the racial wage gap and fortify our region’s much-needed talent pool.
Partnering with school districts across Minnesota, Career Academies provides specialized funding, technical assistance and coaching, and a platform for peer-to-peer support focused on building sustainable career pathways alongside local businesses.
Together, we work to ensure students in grades 9 to 14 have equitable access to college credits, rigorous and relevant curriculums, and meaningful and supportive work experiences.
