Mission Statement

Although Minneapolis Community and Technical College (MCTC) is among the most affordable colleges in Minnesota, the costs and the barriers of attending can still be challenging. The MCTC Foundation was created more than 30 years ago with a mission of providing financial assistance and educational support to students in need who attend MCTC.

Power of YOU

The Foundation has been a partner in a special initiative that makes the first two years of college available tuition-free for graduates of Minneapolis and Saint Paul public high schools. The Power of YOU(http://powerofyou.minneapolis.edu/) , a collaboration among MCTC, Saint Paul College and Metropolitan State University, is designed to significantly increase post-secondary participation rates of urban students, particularly students of color. The Power of YOU initiative is designed to help students overcome the real and perceived financial barriers to higher education while reinforcing the idea that post-secondary education is the key to a fulfilling life.
The Power of YOU is now beginning its fourth academic year and evidence of its success is everywhere. According to Wilder Research, enrollment of Minneapolis and St. Paul high school graduates “more than doubled” at the three Power of YOU institutions. Students of color increased by 150 percent, and low-income students increased by 115 percent. Wilder Research also found that Power of YOU students remain in school at higher rates and earn more credits toward degrees than comparable non-Power of YOU students. It’s clear that the program is working and now we are beginning to see students transfer to four-year colleges.
