Supporting African American Nonprofits
during Black History Month
C2i exists to support a critically underserved population of older youth in foster care. We provide unique programming and advocacy for youth ages 14 - 24 to ensure a healthy transition to independent living. Creating lasting, supportive relationships with our youth while ensuring a healthy mind, body, and spirit is the core of our work! Our values are based on a holistic philosophy, offering direct support with financial literacy, housing, employment, education, and personal wellness.
The Power of People Leadership Institute, co- founded by, Dr. Verna Cornelia and Brother Shane Price, inspires, informs and mentors youth and adults to overcome life’s obstacles through personal development, personal power and leadership. The institute consists of three programs, Girls Taking Action, mentoring program for girls grades 6-12, Boys of Hope Program™, mentoring program for boys grades 6-12 and Re-Planting Program™, works to reduce recidivism, particularly for African Americans.
Twin Cities R!SE transforms lives through personal empowerment, career training, and meaningful employment. We offer a unique, holistic approach to help people overcome barriers, instill self-confidence, and gain the 21st century skills needed to achieve employment and financial independence. For employers, we provide skilled, dependable, and capable workers who are willing to work hard and are eager to succeed.
