As the nonprofit partner of the Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS), AchieveMpls mobilizes a wide web of community resources to accomplish our shared goal of every student career and college ready. We direct the STEP-UP Achieve youth employment program with the City of Minneapolis, manage Career & College Centers in MPS high schools, raise funds for MPS strategic priorities, and engage the community as volunteers, employers, funders and advocates for student success. In collaboration with MPS, AchieveMpls also manages and administers over 100 funds that benefit Minneapolis schools, teachers, classrooms, students, and college-bound graduates. In 2013, AchieveMpls was ranked #7 in Philanthropedia’s list of top 120 Minnesota nonprofits in the field of educational support for at-risk youth. Learn more at
