We are dedicated to preparing students in underserved communities for the future of work through innovation and accessible technology learning programs.
We partner with like-minded community organizations to bring quality, hands-on STEM learning to inner-city Minneapolis youth—especially young women and students from racial minority backgrounds in order to bridge skills and experience gaps, and help more students succeed in higher education and today’s job market.
What makes Create Mpls special is they didn’t just teach me how to use technology, they made me realize that the ability to use technology had been within me all along. They helped my friends and I recognize our talents and passions, and taught us that no racial, gender or economic barrier could stand in our way.

Coding has been great for the students. We tried this type of program in the past without success, but I feel what createMPLS provides is a great fit and has helped the students feel successful. You have already shown how you replicable your programs can be. Thanks for sharing your energy and passion!
The value of createMPLS is that it delivers hands on technology and engineering programming to schools that wouldn’t otherwise have access. The best part is that the programming takes place on site at my children’s school! As parents, we don’t have to drive our children to the programs, it comes to us!
