Career & College Readiness

Achieve Twin Cities is the long-time strategic nonprofit partner of Minneapolis Public Schools, collaborating with MPS School Counseling on career and college readiness services in MPS high schools, staffing the Career & College Centers and serving as the district’s long-time nonprofit foundation. 

The MPS Career & College Centers (CCCs) - which are managed by Achieve Twin Cities in partnership with MPS – are open to all students and provide student-centered, individualized career & college readiness advising and connection to resources and opportunities that help young people plan for life after graduation and achieve their career and postsecondary goals.

CCCs are embedded in 11 MPS high schools, with additional career and college readiness support available in 8 Contract Alternative Schools and the MPS Online School. The full list of the MPS CCCs & contact information for Achieve Twin Cities Career & College Readiness Coordinators at each school can be found here

Our CCC staff are experts in career and college readiness support and work closely with our school counseling teams. They include admission experts, licensed school counselors, social workers, educators and others with extensive experience working with young people. If students or families have any questions regarding career & college planning, stop by your school's CCC or contact your school's career & college readiness coordinator.
