Mpls. Community & Technical College (MCTC) has partnered with PPL on several occasions and over many years. We recently introduced a successful Pharmacy Technician training program. PPL is a flexible, fair and transparent organization, very dedicated to serving their clients. They understand the needs and challenges of providing education and supply the wrap around services needed to ensure student success. The work we do together is important and very rewarding. Thank you, PPL, for your continued partnership!

I've worked with PPL for five years as a college administrator at Minneapolis Community and Technical College for five years. They are a dedicated and professional organization committed to preparing individuals for work, college, and fiancial independance. They freely share their expertise and creative ideas. Minneapolis is lucky to have PPL as a thriving non profit.
