The mission of Twin Cities RISE! is to provide employers with skilled workers, primarily men from communities of color, by training under- and unemployed adults for skilled jobs that pay a living wage of at least $20,000 annually plus benefits. TCR! helps those who face the greatest challenges to employment achieve long-term economic independence. This is accomplished through an intensive work skills training program that includes Personal Empowerment, coaching, skills classes, internships and employment placement.
In addition to advancing this program to eradicate poverty in Minnesota, TCR! is dedicated to an outcomes-driven model. Through the Pay-for-Performance (PFP) contract with the State of Minnesota, TCR! meets benchmarks and tracks participant success in exchange for funding.
