Who We Are

Project Success is a youth-development organization that works with 16,000 students in 26 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 About Us section.

What We Do

Using our proven curriculum and methodology, Project Success helps students connect to their purpose. We motivate 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.
