Helping Students Succeed through the Power of YOU Program

Read about the beginnings of the Power of YOU program, which started as a conversation back in 2004, in this Minnesota 2020 article by Asad Zaman.

“Since 2006 when the “Power of YOU” program started over 2,000 students have benefitted from it. Of them, over 1,300 were MCTC students. The program is open to students of all races. Students who participate in this program have a 67% higher graduation rate than students who do not. The overall graduation rate has jumped by over 30% over the life of this program. The vast majority of the students surveyed reported that they hoped to earn a bachelor’s degree or higher.”
