EMERGE’s mission is to reveal the potential in people and communities through skill building, employment, and economic opportunity. EMERGE provides employment, career training and financial wellness services in North Minneapolis and Cedar-Riverside. We also have a powerful history in the field of Social Enterprise, operating businesses that provide people overcoming barriers with jobs and career opportunities. 

Each year, EMERGE helps thousands of people in the Minneapolis region access jobs, financial coaching, career training, and other key services along pathways to brighter futures. Our programs have special expertise in supporting employment for participants facing the following barriers: 

  • Formerly incarcerated or overcoming a criminal background 
  • New Americans, many with limited English skills and/or low educational attainment
  • Single parents living in poverty and seeking to end reliance on public assistance
  • Participants in need of career training to obtain living-wage jobs
