Connection, Inspiration and Empowerment through Project Success Programming

December 28, 2022

Since the beginning of this 2022-23 school year, Project Success has provided hundreds of meaningful experiences and connections for thousands of young people and their families through Curriculum, Expeditions, Certificates, and the Arts, including: 

  • Four 10-week certificate programs for 70 students 
  • Tours to 12 college, university and tech school campuses for 150 students 
  • Local outdoor adventures for nearly 400 students 
  • And thousands of in-class workshops in students’ English, English Learner and Special education inclusion classrooms in all Minneapolis Public Schools. 

One of our founding programs is Theater Experiences. Project Success has always believed in the power of theater. Theater is more than a “show.” It broadens one’s world and the future possibilities and promotes connections to others. PS theater experiences also make space for powerful conversations as we heard from Kaytie Kamphoff, one of our partner teachers at Patrick Henry High School:  




“Following every PS field trip, we engage in essential conversations about subjects such as identity, community, and overcoming adversity. As a result, my students are more engaged in their learning.” 

So far this school year, more than 2,000 students, families and teachers have experienced theater with Project Success in partnership with more than 50 Twin Cities theaters.  

Support from people like you helps make this possible and is vital to continue to connect our students to each other, to their communities, and to their purpose.  

Thank you for being a part of the PS Community at a time when providing spaces for students to connect and unlock their futures is needed more than ever. Happy New Year – the best is yet to come!
