Minneapolis, MN—To work toward a thriving community where racial, social and economic equity is a reality for everyone in Minneapolis

The Big Idea

The Northside Funders Group and its network of private, public and corporate grantmakers hope to shift the status quo of chronic unemployment for African American men. The North@Work initiative blends best practices and emerging innovations in workforce development to fully support jobseekers, with a unique focus on employer leadership and inclusivity. The initiative could connect unemployed men to meaningful, living-wage jobs, and increased economic prosperity in north Minneapolis.
