The Minnesota Chill Foundation is seeking funding to support the growth of our career exploration and college readiness programs.


Our Chill Tech Program is a 6-week, paid internship giving our scholars hands on training with a certified technician. We are partnering with PSITech Support, a BIPOC-led technology startup whose goal is to diversify the technology industry and prepare young people for this competitive job market. Scholars will: 

-  Learn best practices to address common hardware and software issues, including tools and maintenance of Mac and PC product. 

- A toolkit including a laptop.

- Develop professionalism and customer service skills 

- Keep their laptops upon completion of the internship 


We want to help normalize sending scholars to trade schools after high school without making them feel like they're less than a 4-year university scholar. 


Our College Readiness Program provides: 

- Monthly seminars for scholars and parents covering financial management, test prep, admission guidance, and more 

- Annual college visits, with a focus on HBCU's 

- A toolkit including a laptop and assistance with opening a bank account with First Independent Bank, the first Black-owned bank in Minnesota.
