Better Jobs. Better Lives. Better Community.
Cedar Riverside
Opportunity Center

The Cedar Riverside Opportunity Center is a one-stop shop for educational and workforce resources and a pipeline to good jobs for people of all ages through the committed presence of public and private sector employers. Hennepin County, partnering with EMERGE, the City of Minneapolis and Minneapolis Community Technical College (MCTC) will focus efforts on employment/jobs (structured career pathways and training opportunities), skill building and credentials and certification. The ultimate goal of the Opportunity Center is the reduction of unemployment and to increase higher educational attainment and enrollment within the Cedar Riverside neighborhood.

We envision a Cedar Riverside neighborhood that is a culturally vibrant and economically thriving community, with the Cedar Riverside Opportunity Center as a hub for youth and adults to access quality education and employment opportunities.

We aim to turn that vision into reality by providing access to employment and training opportunities for Cedar Riverside residents by bringing to the neighborhood employers, educational institutions, and others who seek mutually beneficial relationships with the neighborhood, where organizations could recruit from the largely untapped pool of Cedar Riverside residents, while residents could access the jobs and opportunities that have typically been absent from the neighborhood.
