Twin Cities RISE! (TCR!) is an innovative anti-poverty organization created in 1993 that provides long-term job training designed for those facing the most barriers to employment and long-term self-sufficiency. TCR!’s mission is to provide employers with skilled workers – primarily men from communities of color in the Twin Cities area – by training under- and unemployed adults for skilled jobs that pay a living wage of at least $20,000 annually.
Twin Cities RISE! provides a 12-18 month work skills and Personal Empowerment training program for adults living in deep poverty that culminates in full-time, living wage jobs with benefits.
The Core Program curriculum includes work skills training courses, Personal Empowerment courses, one-on-one coaching, and employment readiness and placement. Learn more at www.twincitiesrise.org
