Dreams to Futures Campaign
“School districts across the country would love to have Project Success. It would be great to expand it into every single school to help students prepare for today and tomorrow’s workforce.”
Dr. Brenda Cassellius
Current Superintendent, Boston Public Schools
Minnesota Commissioner of Education, 2010-18
Now is the time to deepen and expand.
EXPAND TO SERVE ALL STUDENTS IN MINNEAPOLIS
in grades 6-12, up from just 68% of students just three years ago.
LAUNCH NEW PROGRAMS
to expand out-of-school options and opportunities: out-of-state college tours, career exploration programs and certificates.
TEST AND BUILD PARTNERSHIPS
to widen our impact beyond the Twin Cities, including our 2018 Hamilton program, and new partnerships in Minnesota and beyond.
Help us serve more students and build on 27 years of impact.
“Project Success works. We see statistically significant positive gains in on-time graduation rates, attendance, and most importantly grade point average, which is the greatest predictor of future success.”
Chief of Academics and Accountability, Research and Equity
Minneapolis Public Schools
90% of students report that Project Success helps them set goals and create a plan for after graduation.
96% of teachers report that Project Success helps students set goals for the future.
50+% of all alumni said that Project Success “has had an impact on what I have been doing since high school graduation.”
Our students need us. Our economy needs us.
“Minnesota needs a skilled, diverse workforce. We can’t afford to lose workers through educational neglect or relocation. Through the new Project Success Institute, funded by the Dreams to Futures Campaign, we are building that workforce by providing the support students need to imagine and map their futures right here in Minnesota.”
