Mission Statement

The mission of the Career Hub is to provide a supplemental skills and tutoring program to improve the academic achievement of under-performing minority students in the Twin Cities seven county metro area. The goal of the Career Hub program is for 100% of participants to achieve proficient marks on state testing in mathematics and reading as well as acquiring soft skills necessary to be successful in the workplace.

All children deserve the chance to reach their full potential and we want to help remove the barriers they may currently face including poverty, isolation or challenges at home. The academic assistance, along with an entry level job with growth possibilities, will go a long way in helping our participants become self-sufficient and reducing their dependency on government programs.

Through partnerships with local organizations, we will train and place our participants in internships. These internships will grow technical and support skills with some of the biggest and best brands the world has to offer. Without access to candidates with these types of skills, we are unable to compete and fill these jobs locally, and the work is often sent off-shore while unemployment in the U.S remains high.

Description

We plan to serve diverse, at-risk, high school juniors and seniors with the goal of assisting them in meeting graduation requirements and placing them in career opportunities that will lead them to self sufficiency. Our core programs will consist of supplemental tutoring and academic support in reading and math aimed at demonstrating the proficiency necessary to pass the standardized tests required for graduation. Additionally we will be offering soft skill training focused on appropriate workplace behavior in order to teach the skills necessary to successfully navigate the workplace. We will be implementing technology solutions to support a blended, applied learning methodology leveraging both instructor lead as well as on-line training opportunities, with needed technology available for use at the Career Hub. We will then leverage a corporate partner to provide internship opportunities to those who demonstrate the drive and desire for the available types of work.
