"We believe an equitable society can be realized."

Workforce Solutions

  • The Minneapolis Urban League will prepare its constituents who are entering or re-entering the workforce to successfully pursue emerging careers with livable wages.


When Charles Shaw moved to Minneapolis from Liberia in 2012, he struggled to maintain employment and housing. He turned to the Minneapolis Urban League for help and worked with Job Developer, Darcus Mitchell, to gain housing, employment, a driver's permit and temporary work/travel papers.

Charles signed up for the Urban Tech Jobs Program, and earned his Cisco certification through our Minnesota Computers for Schools partnership. Today, he is planning on getting his driver's license this spring, and recently began a new job as a pharmacy technician at the Perrigo Company. In 90 days, he'll be eligible for a raise to $18/hour!
