Nine years ago, The Minneapolis Foundation invited a group of third grade students to start dreaming of college. In 2010, for many of those students, that dream has become a reality.
This video contains additional highlights from the Destination Success event on June 15, 2010 at Nicollet Island Pavilion in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Launched in 2001, Destination 2010 enrolled 364 third-graders across seven struggling Minneapolis and St. Paul district public schools in a nine-year student achievement and scholarship initiative. ”D2010” was designed to help these students, the majority of whom were low income and students of color, graduate in 2010 and pursue higher education -- and to share the lessons learned along the way.
The D2010 students who remained continuously enrolled in the Minneapolis and Saint Paul public school districts, and non-district Cargill Scholars, would receive a scholarship upon entering a post-secondary institution: $10,000 for a four-year college or $5,000 for a vocational/technical school.
