Strategic Plan


A strategic plan outlines an organization’s long-term goals, objectives, and strategies, acting as a roadmap for decision-making and resource allocation. During the final months of 2021, the entire Project Success staff and the entire board met to share ideas about the future vision of the organization, creating a plan that outlines our direction, goals, and priorities over the next three and a half years. Led by an incredible team of facilitators from HueLife, a small group of board and staff combined these ideas into our  2022-2025 Strategic Plan which is outlined below.

  • Innovate and build on strength of current programs with Minneapolis students
  • Expand credit bearing and credit recovery programming and offer to more students
  • Develop program partnerships and systems to alleviate access barriers for students (ex: transportation, childcare, technology, etc.)
  • Create an adaptive and scalable model, including virtual programming, that can be feasibly integrated and expanded into other districts in a financially sustainable way

  • Design and communicate development within roles and growth pathways for staff
  • Ensure all positions have training and professional development opportunities that are relevant and meet a need for their role
  • Evaluate and improve the hiring and recruitment processes to create a talented, diverse, and culturally responsive organization
