Sign-up for PEACE; Pathways to Emergency & Academy Career Experiences.

PEACE is aimed at high school juniors and seniors to provide pathways into justice and emergency services careers. PEACE gives students a variety of hands-on ways to learn about justice and emergency services career pathways. PEACE students will learn about these careers through:

  • Participation in mini-academies designed to be engaging and offer a real-world perspective.
  • Being mentored by a professional from the industry.
  • Working in summer internships in one of the career fields.

In partnership with Minneapolis Public Schools, students will be supported throughout the program by a Check & Connect case manager who will keep them on track toward graduation and help guide them in their next education or training steps. Other partners include the Minneapolis Police, Fire, and City Attorney’s departments, Hennepin County Medical Center, and several departments with in Hennepin County.
