CTEP AmeriCorps Program

Thank you to SPNN!  The City is a proud partner of the CTEP AmeriCorps Program.

The IT Department, in partnership with Civil Rights and CPED, applied for SPNN's Community Technology Empowerment Project (CTEP) AmeriCorps Program to address the digital divide as it relates to the racial employment disparity in Minneapolis. IT was selected as one of 32 host sites throughout the Twin Cities to participate in the 2013 – 2014 program, and we have also been selected to participate in the 2014 - 2015 program year. 

In September, 2013, Adja Gildersleve joined IT as part of the CTEP AmeriCorps program.  The AmeriCorps position includes direct service with Minneapolis residents along with capacity building and civic engagement projects.
