Building careers. Empowering lives. Ending poverty. An innovative work skills training program in the Twin Cities Metro Area.
The mission of Twin Cities RISE! is to provide employers with skilled workers--primarily men from communities of color in the Twin Cities area--by training under- and unemployed adults for skilled jobs that pay a living wage of at least $20,000 annually.
We do this by providing a 12 month work skills and Personal Empowerment training program for adults living in deep poverty. Personal Empowerment is the lifeblood of our program. Participants learn they are lovable, important and valuable – regardless of what has happened to them.
