Students in a Project Success performing arts program
The Project Success Institute provides young people with experiences that stretch, deepen, and hone their aspirations. We offer workshops and certificates in performing arts, financial literacy, wellness, and computer coding so that students have a broader sense of the occupations and lifestyles available to them, both in the future and in their lives today. Opportunities for Minneapolis Public School students in grades 9-12 will take place during evenings and weekends. All levels of experience are welcome.
