MINN is a volunteer led organization and our mission is made possible by the work of  dedicated, talented volunteers. Volunteering with MINN is a great way to meet fellow international practitioners, learn from your peers, and gain valuable experience and connections. 


In her role as a Regional Program Officer for the English Access Microscholarship Program at FHI 360, MINN Program Manager Bridgette Springer co-authored a brief providing the latest evidence of the challenges that adolescent girls face to go to and stay in school as well as examples of FHI 360 programs that are successfully addressing the issues at stake.

We are proud to share this important work as we continue to honor International Women's Day throughout the month.


Emily Nohner recently joined the MINN Board of Directors. With over 10 years of nonprofit experience, she is dedicated to human development, both overseas or as she puts it- "in her own backyard.” She has amassed particular focuses on women's rights, fair housing, financial equity, increasing access to capital, and value-driven leadership. A graduate of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, and a Truman Scholar, Emily looks forward to applying her experience and collaborating with MINN on outreach and furthering meaningful connections in the community.
