Our Mission

We are dedicated to preparing students in underserved communities for the future of work through innovation and accessible technology learning programs.

The Problem

The Minnesota High Tech Association predicts that by 2025 the state will have nearly 200,000 tech jobs. Yet, many of Minnesota’s low-income and minority students – who represent nearly 40% of the state’s student population – do not have equal access to the resources and training needed to meet this demand.

Our Solution

We partner with like-minded community organizations to bring quality, hands-on STEM learning to inner-city Minneapolis youth—especially young women and students from racial minority backgrounds in order to bridge skills and experience gaps, and help more students succeed in higher education and today’s job market.

Our Current Programs are:

What makes Create Mpls special is they didn’t just teach me how to use technology, they made me realize that the ability to use technology had been within me all along. They helped my friends and I recognize our talents and passions, and taught us that no racial, gender or economic barrier could stand in our way.
