View Step Up's 2021 Outcomes

Step Up brings together Minneapolis young people (ages 14-21) with Twin Cities employers through internships and training that build careers and lead to a diverse, skilled and equitable workforce. Since 2003, Step Up has created over 29,000 high-quality internship opportunities.

In summer 2021, Step Up served 1,373 young people via traditional remote and hybrid internships, as well as paid online training.

If you’re interested in hosting an intern(s) this summer, please complete a Pledge Form and a Step Up team member will be in contact with you.
