- Annual Report
For nearly 30 years, Project Success has been transforming thousands of students’ lives through a proven model of innovative experience learning.
Project Success motivates and inspires each student in every school we serve to dream about their futures, help them create a plan to get there, and give them the tools and support they need to achieve their goals.
Over the course of seven years — beginning in grade 6 and continuing through grade 12 — we engage students in-class through a facilitated curriculum and through local-to-global expeditions, arts programming, and skills-based certificates.
Founded in 1994, serving 200 students at North High School in Minneapolis, Project Success has grown to serve more than 15,000 Minneapolis students annually in 22 Minneapolis public schools. We serve all seven Minneapolis core high schools. We achieve our goals through the four components of our program:
90% of high school students report that Project Success helps them think about their futures, set goals and create a plan for graduation.
- Curriculum: Our curriculum is delivered by professional facilitators through our in-class workshops and throughout all of the rest of our programming. Our proven methodology helps students dream, ignite and grow.
- Arts: We utilize the power of theater and the arts to inspire, build community, act as a springboard for discussion and encourage students to tell their own stories.
- Expeditions: Local and global expeditions allow students to see a part of the world they have never seen before, or see something familiar in a new way, building confidence and opening new doors for their futures.
- Institute: Certificates in computer coding, financial literacy, performing arts and wellness ignite possibilities for students and prepare them for life after high school.
Project Success complements the work of teachers and counselors by enriching the core curriculum and creating long-term relationships with students over seven years.
All program components are designed and proven to help students gain confidence and resilience in creative thinking, decision making, goal setting, and resourcefulness while developing the skills and generating the support to plan their futures.
