Students & Families
Welcome! In this section, you will find information for Project SUCCESS students and families, including what is happening for students in the classroom, opportunities for students and families outside of the classroom, and who is providing these services.
Who We Are
Project SUCCESS is a youth-development organization that works with 13,000 students in 19 Minneapolis public schools each year to help them develop important life skills. Find out more about our staff and Board, and our mission, vision and values in the Who We Are section.
What We Do
Project SUCCESS motivates and inspires young people to dream about the future, helps them take steps to get there, and gives them the tools they need to achieve their goals. Our vision is that every child entering middle school will graduate high school with a plan for their future and have the skills and confidence that will take them through the rest of their lives.
How We Do It
Our program activities begin in 6th grade and serve students continuously through 12th grade in the schools we serve. We work with each student in every partering school. Students don't need to find us - we come to them. Through goal-setting workshops every month in every English/Language arts classroom, professional and student theater experiences, and enrichment activities - like college tours, outdoor experiences, and freshman orientation - designed to deepen their skills and experiences, students build life skills, supportive relationships, confidence, and motivation, and graduate with plans for their futures.
