Impact and Programs
Project Success works with more than 16,000 6th-12th grade students and their families across 26 Minneapolis public schools. During the 2019-2020 school year, this included the addition of four new middle schools and program expansion to deepen students’ experiences. As COVID-19 hit in March 2020 and students shifted to distance learning, we continued to connect with students. We adapted each and every one of our programs for online, interactive experiences and we added new programs that leverage ways to connect from a distance. Since then, the Project Success website has experienced 1,000 visits per week, and some programs have tripled in participation which has shown to increase students’ academic engagement and achievement. To learn more about what programming looked like during the distance learning period, see the Winter 2020 Highlights Video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v
Project Success continues to adapt programming to meet the needs of our students and families, and our partner school communities, in safe and engaging ways. We are, and always will be, here for our 26 schools and 16,000 students to help them connect to their purpose through our curriculum, arts, expeditions, and certificates programming. Our goal is to maintain and build our connections with and experiences for students so they can continue to focus on planning and preparing for their futures.
