The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Disrupting Poverty, Part 1 + 2

Linder, Monique

Mentoring Young Adults (MYA) was founded in 2007 to help develop and empower young adults with a vision for their lives by focusing on leadership, employment housing, education, and entrepreneurial skills development. MYA is the only youth serving organization open on Saturdays and with on-call staff 24/7 and during holidays in Saint Paul North End. MYA programming strives to meet the needs of the diversity of African American and other high-risk youth. MYA is also the only walk-in youth service agency in Ward 1 and the only culturally-based organization that specifically targets at-risk, hard to serve African American youth. A student researcher is needed to help MYA document the impact of MYA programming for participants and the broader community through program and community impact data. The report will be shared to all participants, stakeholders, current and prospective funders for funding requests and to be used as a public relations tool.
