Partnerships

The work of EMERGE would be impossible without multiple robust partnerships to provide a range of education and career training options.

  • Hennepin Technical College, Dunwoody Technical College, Minneapolis College (formerly MCTC) and other local colleges partner with EMERGE to provide post-secondary opportunities, including classes at EMERGE and on campus, and post-secondary enrollment support.
  • Following a 2-year planning process, EMERGE opened the Cedar Riverside Opportunity Center in March 2017 in collaboration with the Cedar-Riverside Partnership, including Hennepin County, the City of Minneapolis, Minneapolis College and 12 other public, private and nonprofit sector organizations.
  • We partner with Hennepin County Adult Corrections, The Minnesota Department of Corrections and other justice system partners to provide robust pre- and post-release services that engage people in finding jobs and making a successful transition to life post-incarceration.
