STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"COPE Project is a community outreach post-secondary educational program designed to promote “student success”. Participating students may have demonstrated academic potential but might not know how to take tangible steps toward post-secondary enrollment, and the completion of their application process.

 

Although, the majority of our participants are young people of color and first generation scholars, the organization exclude any other interested and qualified individuals. The organization is committed to assist all students who demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and appreciation necessary for our rapidly changing, culturally diverse and global society. 

Scholars of Minnesota-COPE Project is a member of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN) where we are part of a network of more than 1,400 other nonprofit organizations and 6,500 nonprofit leaders in Minnesota. As a partner/member, we have access to excellent information and resources to help us achieve our mission and goals."
