Your donation gives local youth the experience, training, and hope they need to build better futures.

Teens growing up in the Twin Cities' urban core don't have the same opportunities as other youth. Jobs are scarce. Many struggle with poverty, have an absence of positive role models, and lack the means to learn life and job readiness skills.

Cookie Cart gives local teens the skills and hope they need to pursue their dreams: a better job, a college education, a career, financial stability.

Teens who work at Cookie Cart are EMPLOYMENT READY and learn CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS to solve problems in the bakery.

They set GOALS and work to accomplish them while practicing INTERPERSONAL SKILLS at cookie sales events in the community.

They CONNECT WITH NEW COMMUNITIES as they explore new fields, jobs and career opportunities.

During a recent work shift, a flour delivery from one of Cookie Cart’s partner organizations arrived. Omar, one of our newest youth employees, conceptualized an assembly line to use numbers, not strength, to get the work done. Your donation gives teens like Omar new opportunities to develop as leaders. Thank you!
