Volunteers are the soul of our organization. They drive our programming, create our strategic direction, and they experience professional growth through these opportunities. Volunteering for MINN comes in many forms of engagement, from board service, to committee membership, to one-off projects that move us forward. Each volunteer plays an important part in MINN.

However, every once and a while a star shines through. It’s the person that shows up and digs in, taking responsibility for new and old ideas and making sure it is executed.
