MPHA loves the Step Up interns who join us every summer! We’re a proud 2018 Step Up Employer of the Year, and one of MPHA’s property managers was a Step Up Supervisor of the Year in 2019.

Every summer, Step Up connects Minneapolis youth ages 14-21 with over 200 top local employers—including MPHA—for a paid internship that includes:

  • Valuable job experience
  • Building professional skills
  • Expanding their network of support
  • Exploring career interests
  • Earning a paycheck

Step Up places Minneapolis students with barriers to employment in paid summer jobs at top Minneapolis businesses and local nonprofits. All Step Up interns complete a rigorous work readiness training curriculum before they are eligible to be placed in summer jobs. All training classes this year will be on Saturdays at Minneapolis Community & Technical College (MCTC).
