Dear Friends of EMERGE,
It's been one year since we swung open the doors of the EMERGE Career & Technology Center (ECTC) to the public. And what a year! We've offered training in machining, welding, IT and property maintenance, along with digital literacy and work readiness training. Over 1,000 people have already benefitted.
The ECTC has allowed us to expand and refine our strategic effort to create access to better jobs. In our growing labor market, technology and manufacturing fields are taking off, and basic computer skills are essential. I also see the ECTC as intrinsic to our goal of building better community
. The ECTC has become an essential and vibrant community space in North Minneapolis, accommodating countless events, partnership gatherings, and community forums. We hope the relationships formed here will reverberate in positive ways throughout the community. I invite you to click here to learn more about the ECTC and renovation
I am thrilled by the momentum I've seen at the ECTC, and know even more effort is needed. Thank you for your support of EMERGE and our community.
President & CEO
