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.
