G.E.D. Not Required, College Degrees Accepted!

June 8, 2016 – We are pleased to announce, that as of today, Twin Cities R!SE (TCR) no longer requires a G.E.D. for program participation, nor will individuals be excluded from our program who have already earned a college degree. This change is a part of our three year strategic plan implementation to continue to be innovative and meet the changing needs of participants and community members.

“Needless barriers to participation in our program should not be in place, that shut out individuals with a low income who need TCR services, regardless of their educational status.” ~Tom Streitz CEO & President of Twin Cities R!SE

Twin Cities R!SE now accepts all individuals who have earned less than $25,000 in the past year and otherwise meet ELIGIBILITY, regardless of their educational status.
