Hope is powerful. Without hope, kids are less motivated, less engaged, and less likely to succeed. Every young person needs opportunities to build and nurture that hope with the support of caring adults, so they can understand who they are, where they want to go in this world, and how they are going to get there. Each year, Project SUCCESS asks 12,000 youth what they want to do with their lives. They listen. Then they help them dream, plan, succeed.
Project SUCCESS serves each student in every one of 17 Minneapolis public schools for up to seven years over a crucial time period – from 6th through 12th grade. Project SUCCESS inspires students to dream big, develop 21st Century skills, and helps them apply that knowledge and those skills in the real world. They meet young people where they are without judgment, using outcomes-based programming, and help them get where they want to go.
