Welcome to Our New Staff and School Partners!
Students from one of our new partner schools, Wellstone International High School, were among the group of students we brought on college tours to Boston University and Harvard University in fall 2017.
Project SUCCESS has added new members to our fantastic team this school year. Our new staff will support us in our current programming, as well as our 2017-18 expansion into two new Minneapolis Public Schools: Andersen United Community School and Wellstone International High School!
We are pleased to introduce you to our new staff:
